Luke 6:38 has nothing to do with MONEY

I have been saved for 15 years, and today at my church, this just hit me. My Pastor has been preaching about tithing for quite some time now. Well, he quoted, Luke 6:38, and when I turned to it, you know how some bibles divide verses based on their context? Good! Well when I read verse 37 and 38 together, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Thankfully, I throw away all pre-conceived notions and time-honored teachings, doctrines, and traditions for the sake of truth. I must say that Luke 6:38 has NOTHING TO DO WITH MONEY.

Luke 6
32For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.

33And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.

34And if ye lend to them of whom ye hope to receive, what thank have ye? for sinners also lend to sinners, to receive as much again.

35But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.

36Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.

37Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

38Give, 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.
