Good Measure, Packed Together, Shaken Down and Overflowing
Contents May Settle During Shipment

The world's generosity it not like God's. God's generosity will not be outdone and doesn't require fancy packaging to get our attention. Today's reading from Luke's gospel reassures us:

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.
