Most people love giveaways. Walk through a mall or grocery store and you’ll notice people adjusting their path toward employees giving out samples—especially free food!
As believers in Jesus, we’re called to distribute free samples of God’s goodness to others. Jesus said it this way in Matthew 10:8 (NIV) “… Freely you have received; free give.”
Every day should be a give-away day for us. We should look for opportunities to distribute free samples of God’s love, grace, kindness, forgiveness, and favor. We should look for people we can encourage, inspire and support. We should give away faith and friendship. We should be the kind of person that people adjust their path to be near, knowing that something good and life-giving is always in our hearts, hands and mouths.
When we give, we should also remember that good comes back to us. While we don’t give to get, the law of reciprocity works. Jesus taught us this in Luke 6:38 (NIV) “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
Go ahead and give! God will take care of you! Make every day a give-away day!
