Welcome to Summer Mid-Week E-Lift —

Listen and Watch: ”
“Give a Little Love” by Noah and the Whale:

“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.” Luke 6:38

Reflection and Action:

For the next week, plan to give of yourself every day — increasing your giving, as you would increase a exercise program. It may be: money to someone in need; donation to a charity, food; your time, a talent, etc. Keep track of what you give. Record your thoughts and feelings. What did you get in giving?

As you do this, reflect on all that God has given you, and what you receive from others. Name them. What does your giving/receiving balance sheet look like? What would you change?
