Give away your life; you'll find life given back, but not merely given back--given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity."

NET © Notes

sn The background to the image pressed down, shaken together, running over is pouring out grain for measure in the marketplace. One often poured the grain into a container, shook it to level out the grain and then poured in some more. Those who are generous have generosity running over for them.

tn Grk “they will give”; that is, “pour.” The third person plural has been replaced by the passive in the translation.

tn Grk “by [the measure] with which you measure it will be measured back to you.”
