Luke 6:30-31

"Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise."
Luke 6:30-31

This is great stuff.  Seriously... I love it when the rules are so interesting. :)  "Give to every man that asketh of thee" (and I am sure that he means women as well.)   So, if someone asks me for something, then I give it.  Am I okay with that?  Hmm.  It makes you think about how attached you are to your earthly possessions, and how much you trust God. :)  This whole thing is about faith... if someone takes your stuff, you shouldn't ask for it back.  What?? :)  How much do we trust God?  And then, we should treat people as we would like to be treated.  this is a huge thing... do we really do this, ever?  Do we treat our Boss as we would like to be treated?  Our families?  Our co-workers?  The people who are mean to us?  The people who take our stuff? :)  Do we have the faith to really try to live this way in our lives?  I think it is awfully cool.  It adds some challenge to walking down the street.  :)  If someone comes up to you and asks you for change... then you give change.  if she asks you for $34,972, then you have to give $34,972.  Good thing most people only ask for change, eh? :)  I know, I am being silly... but the idea is serious.  It is a great way to treat life, and it is so relaxing to not be attached to your stuff. :)  If someone wants it, you can let it go.  The Lord might have a more important use for it somewhere else. :)  Can we do it?  Today, let's try giving to anyone who asks us.  What a great day it will be. :)
