Mercy and Giving: Packed together, shaken down, and overflowing

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
“Stop judging and you will not be judged.
Stop condemning and you will not be condemned.
Forgive and you will be forgiven.
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 6:36-38

I'm a notorious bean-counter. When Dad would pass out M&M's, I would count to make sure that Hannah and I had the same number of reds, browns, greens and blues. But the measure with which I measure? I need to rethink my measurements.

The little baby duck that was born into our family just five weeks ago has been a first rate reminder and a precious little instructor in this lesson o'the day. I'm grateful. And tired of learning all the lessons. Good thing we have nap time two hours after we wake up.
