If You Sow, You’ll Reap

“The one who plants generously will get a generous crop.”          2 Corinthians 9:6 NLT

Your financial harvest is determined by what you spend, what you save, and what you sow into God’s kingdom.  The Bible teaches that consecutive sowing guarantees consecutive reaping.  Your future begins with what you have in your hand right now.  Nothing is too little to multiply.  Every one of us has received something from God that is capable of reproducing; the secret is putting it into His hands.  He wants us to succeed, to have the resources needed to fulfill His will, and help others do the same.  He said, “I am the Lord…which teacheth thee to profit” (Isaiah 48:17).

In the New Testament Jesus taught fishermen how to catch more fish (See Luke 5:1-11).  On one occasion He even told His disciples where to find money to pay their taxes (See Matthew 17:27).  He taught that giving, not withholding, is the way to multiply what’s been given to you (See Luke 6:38).  Sometimes your seed is your only way out of trouble, but you must be willing to sow it.  Here are the facts of Scripture.  Jesus showed people where money could be found.  And when they failed at something, He motivated them to get up and try again–using His methods.  He told them God was their unfailing source of supply, and encouraged them to expect a harvest on every seed they sowed.  Paul says, “God loves people who love to give.  God can bless you with everything you need, and you will always have more than enough to do all kinds of good things for others” (2 Corinthians 9:7-8 CEV).  Bottom line: If you sow, you’ll reap!  It’s that simple!
