The culture of the kingdom of God is that we get as good as we give. We are forgiven to the same degree that we forgive others. We are blessed according to our level of generosity and kindness to others.
The key behind this kind of thinking is to get our eyes off of ourselves. When we stop thinking of ourselves first, we receive the blessings that God wants to give us.
Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you. (Luk 6:38)
The measure that you put others first will always be the measure that you receive what you need. And not just to other people, what you give to God is the ultimate measure. How much will you give Him of your time, your tithe, your praise and worship? Will He be ignored and slotted into your busy schedule, or will He be honored and sought after?
Spiritual growth in God’s kingdom requires a change of attitude that can only come from putting others first and giving everything from your heart.
