Father Wants to Give

Father Wants to Give

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap.  Luke 6:38

You have the capacity to give from abundance. There is so much love within you that can be poured out to those around you. Do you know yourself as someone who is loved? Can you recognize how active God’s Spirit is within you? You are loved and the abundance of God’s love is with you. Out of your abundance, love flows.

The example of this in the parable is the father letting the prodigal son leave home, and then forgiving him. Love does not seek revenge by saying, “You did this to me and now you must pay me back.” There is nothing in the father that needs to show superiority or demand something back. The father welcomes his sons just as they are. His love is there for them whether they are at home or away. Love flows from the heart, longing for reunion. This same love flows from each of us because God’s Spirit of abundant love flows through our hearts.

Lord, open the floodgates of my heart. Instruct me beyond my fear to mercy.
