But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap
also bountifully.” 2 Corinthians 9:6
God encourages us to give generously by stating clearly that the more seeds we plant, the more crops we will harvest. This earthly comparison reminds us that God created the earthly order, and giving follows the same ordered pattern.
To spread our seed bountifully requires the trust that can only come from faith. We cast the seed into the ground and we are not able to see or control the growth. We must trust God that in season it will bear fruit!
Oh but when our faith bears fruit, look at the transformation! The seed is next to nothing on its own, just a little bundle of potential. But, with time, with patience, with cultivation, with trust, with FAITH, the seed is transformed into a generous harvest, a glorious increase, a prosperity exceeding abundantly above all we ask or think! Amen!
