Mark 4, 21-25:
“Whatever measure you use, they will use it on you, and more abundantly. For to the one who has will be given, and from the one who has not will be taken away even what they have”.
We are so used to measurements.
We measure time, we measure space, we measure things and we even measure people.
And most often, we measure for profit:
* we measure time to get paid,
* we measure space to speculate,
* we measure people by what each one of them can bring us…
Today Jesus tells us in the Gospel that the measure we use with others will also be used with us.
He has only one measure: that of love, mercy and forgiveness.
And he invites us to use only this measure. The measure of free and selfless love.
Don’t forget that the measure of Christian love is to love as Jesus loved. And Jesus loved without measure.
Today, break all your measures of weight, length or capacity and make Jesus’ measure your own.
If you make his your own, he will measure you with his.
Good day to you.
