Super Size, Value Size, Whata Size. It has become the nature of American consumer that when we place an order, we want to go big with it. We all want to get the most bang for our buck.
But, real life is much more complicated than ordering off of a fast food menu. How do I go big on the menu of everyday living?
Jesus may not have frequented fast food establishments (though He was the originator of the super-sized happy meal), but He understood the principles that can make life much bigger and more full than the smallness we often relegate ourselves to. In Luke 6, He tells us:
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” — Luke 6:37-38 (NIV)
Jesus says you are the determining factor of the size of your life. When you measure generously toward others, you measure generously toward yourself.
I pray you find freedom in this remarkable teaching from our Lord Jesus. As you walk in forgiveness and generosity toward others, may it lead you to experience the fullness of life our Lord desires to pour into your lap.
May you experience the joy of a King-Sized life today!
