You plant much
and harvest little.
You eat
but are never satisfied.
You drink
but remain thirsty.
You garnish clothing
but shiver in the wind.
You earn wages
but they disappear.

Why is there never enough?

Give thought to your priorities
and to who is first in your heart.

Hunger for the eternal kingdom
and for righteousness.
Then all these things
will be given to you
in good measure:
pressed down,
shaken together,
running over
and poured into your lap.

With the measuring cup you use to give,
will it be measured out to you.
