The measure we use with God’s Word is the same one He uses for blessings. If we measure out small, incomplete portions of His Word, our blessings come back to us the same way.
You have sown much, and harvested little. You eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill. You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm. And he who earns wages does so to put them into a bag with holes. (Haggai 1:6, ESV)
