They will measure it out for you
Jesus teaches: “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." And we are not merciful.
“Do not judge, so that you will not be judged.” And we do judge. We sentence.
“Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.” And we do condemn.
“Forgive, and you will be forgiven.” And we don’t forgive.
“Give and it will be given to you.” We don’t give. And when we give, it’s only the stuff that really stands in our way at home.
“For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." This does not reach us. We don’t hear that, we don't want to hear that.
