Listen to the Message
Luke 6:38
It Only Takes A Spark
You be the one to ignite the spark. 
Be the change that you wish to see in the world. 
The Law Of  the Harvest
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.”
‭‭Galatians‬ ‭6:7‬ ‭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.””
‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:38‬ ‭NIV‬‬
He’s talking about the secret of living. 
1. It Starts With You. 
  • We want to sow after we reap, not before. 
  • You reap what you sow after you sow. 
  • “If you build it they will come.”
  • “When it comes, I will build it.”
  • I’ll take the first step. 
2. It Comes Back Your Way. 
  • Generosity works like a boomerang. 
  • Jesus said when you give, what you give comes back your way. 
  • What do these words mean - good measure, pressed down, shaken together?
  • If you buy a container of seed from me, you get the full container - all it can possibly hold. 
  • Proverbs 11:17, 11:24, 11:25
  • Sow kindness, generosity and love and you will reap kindness, generosity and love. 
3. It Follows The Standard You Set For Yourself. 
  • “For the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Luke 6:38
  • “The amount you give will determine the amount you get back. ”” Luke‬ ‭6:38‬ ‭NLT‬‬
  • What is the standard I have set?
  • What is the measure I am using in my words. And in my actions?
  • It’s about living your life focused on what you can do for others. 
  • “ those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭11:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬
  • It starts with you, and it comes back to you according to the standard you set for yourself.
