The Return on Giving

"Give, and it will be given to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over!"
Luke 6:38

While the tendency of our human nature may be to receive more than to give, the Gospel tells us giving is actually the most productive way to receive!  Whatever we estend to others, give to others, or do for others comes back to us multiplied.

Find ways to give to those around you today.  Especially to those who may be in subordinate positions.  Freely share information with them and be generous in your praise and encouragement.  Give advice on how to do specific tasks more quickly, more efficiently, or with greater quality.  You will find that the more you do to help others, in their work, the easier your own workload will become!
