Giving is the key to receiving.

2 Corinthians 9:6

Consider this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

St. Paul reminds us that you reap what you sow.

Give and you will receive.

As Jesus put it, “Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” (Luke 6:38)

St. Paul had more to say about this topic: “Keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus who himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” (Acts 20:35)

Paul pointed out that Jesus gave us the ultimate example of giving: “Have among yourselves the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus, Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself.” (Philippians 2:5-7) 

Jesus showed us that this is the blueprint for our lives.

Pour yourself out in love for others…and that love will be poured back to you.
