View Wesley's Notes for Luke 6:38

6:38 Into your bosom - Alluding to the mantles the Jews wore, into which a large quantity of corn might be received. With the same measure that ye mete with, it shall be measured to you again - Amazing goodness! So we are permitted even to carve for ourselves! We ourselves are, as it were, to tell God how much mercy he shall show us! And can we be content with less than the very largest measure? Give then to man, what thou designest to receive of God.

 

Anthony's comment on 2014-01-28 21:43:11:

this has so much meaning and so powerful....What comes to mind is when I was young my father made me go out and pick up leaves in the yard we put them in trash bags and in order to over fill them we would shake them down and press them to gather sit on the bag too push the air out to put more leaves in, when we were done it would be so many leaves in one bag, if it would pop leaves would go everywhere, it was so full,, press down shaken together and running over..................God is so good,, Amen??
