Reciprocity is not only a strong determining factor of human behaviour; it is a powerful method for gaining one’s compliance with a request.
It beautiful how people feel compelled to do something for others who have helped them along the way – even if they haven’t asked for it?
Social psychologists call it The Law of Reciprocity – and it basically says that when someone does something nice for you, you will have a deep-rooted psychological urge to do something nice in return.
This law also states that whatever you give out, gives itself back to you. It’s the foundation on which Luke 6.38 and Gal 6.9 are predicated upon.
The law of seedtime and harvest (Gen 8.22) also alludes to this powerful spiritual technology basically, it means whatever you spend a huge chunk of time on will impact tremendously on who/what you eventually become.
If you give yourself to football and get immersed in it, football gives itself back to you, if you give yourself to drawing, drawing gives itself back to you, if you give yourself to God, God gives himself back to you, if you give yourself to writing, writing gives itself back to you.
The Question of the day is what are you giving yourself to? Because what you are giving yourself to will either make you or break you.
