Loop: a structure, series or process, the end of which is connected to the beginning.
This is the word prompt of the day, and I read a fitting verse in my Bible today.
It’s a verse that makes me think of a loop; a reward given that is connected to action that came first:
Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness and honor.
This is a common principle in the Bible —and in the natural world.
- What we sow, we will reap.
- What we plant, we will harvest.
It’s a worldwide idea found in folktales, fables and culture.
But I love how God’s Word takes it to a new level.
Take the above scripture. When we pursue righteousness and kindness (two things), we will find life, righteousness and honor (three things.)
We gain interest– a bonus.
Another amazing Bible promise:
Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38
Here’s one more looping verse:
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and He will repay him for his deed.
Our God is a generous God. He makes our cup run over. (Psalm 23)
He doesn’t ration His love, His forgiveness or His blessings.
Walking in obedience with the Lord is one lavish loop after another.
