“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
Jesus in Luke 6:38
We have a day for giving thanks. We have a day for getting deals. Now, we also have a day called #GivingTuesday, a day devoted across the globe to giving back. It’s sort of an underground movement of generosity.
#GivingTuesday reflects a very simple idea that Jesus introduced in the New Testament called, “the law of self-administered return.” Here’s how it works: God promises when I turn on the faucet of generosity in my life, there is a heavenly reservoir waiting to flow back toward me with a whole lot more than I could ever contain. My capacity to receive is always in direct proportion to my capacity to give. Learning to give is a key to learning to live!
That’s why #GivingTuesday is not just a good idea—it’s a good practice! Think of a way for your family, your business, your small group, your community or your organization to come together and give more. Invite your friends to join you, and be a part of a celebration of generosity.
As you plan for #GivingTuesday, or any year-end gifts, I hope you will consider making a gift to BrookLink. Help us further the work of equipping, empowering and releasing church leaders across the globe.
