This is a great quote, full of wisdom, but is it Bible or Not?
“The miracle is this: the more we share the more we have.”
It brings to mind a quote from Jesus in the Bible.
Luke 6:38 (New King James Version) – “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.”
This idea is a bit different than our post about Karma and God, the idea that whatever you sow you will reap. Or the Bible verse in Proverbs that if you cast your bread upon the water it will return to you. Both of these quotes illustrate the idea that you only get what you give.
Today’s quote, and the words of Jesus, say that you actually will get more than you give. It’s like an investment of love. Give of yourself, give of your love, and you will get back much more than you give.
Today’s quote, “The miracle is this, the more we share the more we have”, is NOT from the Bible, but perhaps Leonard Nimoy of Star Trek fame took his lead from Jesus when he made this quote.
