Measure This

Did you know that your fist is about the size of a cup of fruit or pasta?

Your thumb (tip to base) is about the size of an ounce of meat or cheese?

Your hand (palm only) measures about three ounces of meat, fish, or poultry.

Your cupped hand measures out two or three ounces of nuts or pretzels?

The problem with this is that my hand is not the same as yours. 

What does that mean? You would be wise to actually measure your servings with a standard measure cup or spoon. And then you must also level off the top of the cup or spoon. A heaped measure is not a true size.

In real life, we would also do well to measure our life against the life of Christ. 

How did Christ treat people?

How did he show love to others?

How did he honour his Father, God?

How did he treat others who were different?

Our true measure is determined by our Christlikeness.

But the LORD said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected

him. The LORD doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
