Managing Abundance

(NOTE: This post was originally titled, "Cultivating Abundance")

I am staking my economic life on Luke 6.38:

    Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

To break out of the idea that Jesus is speaking only (or even primarily) about money, I read "give" as "create value for other people."

I must create value for others every day.

The question is, "How?"

Maslow's hierarchy of needs could come in handy here.
