Tomatoes, Love and Money

“Give and it will be given to you.  Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap.”                  Luke 6:37 (ESV)

A gardener plants seeds.  He expects a crop.  It’s how the process works.  God gave His Son.  He expects a whole family of sons and daughters to be the return on that investment.  But you start talking about expecting something after YOU give and religious people get all up in arms over the concept.  Maybe it’s ok to give and expect love or friendship.  But don’t ever apply it to money.  Why?  Who knows?  It IS how the process works.  Jesus said it right here.  If you give, you will get something in return.  I guess I’m just foolish enough to believe what Jesus said.  Sow – reap.  Plant – harvest.  Give – receive!
