JULY 20 GIVING DETERMINES HARVEST

2 CORINTHIANS 9:1-15
“He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly, and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully” (2 Cor. 9:6). This verse is saying that there’s a direct relationship between the seed we sow and the harvest we reap. Another way of saying this is: You can determine your harvest by the amount of seed you sow. In the natural realm, this is an indisputable fact. No one would argue that a farmer’s harvests are proportional to his sowing. We would consider a farmer crazy if he sowed very little seed but expected a big harvest. Yet in the spiritual realm, people do this all the time. Many people give very little money, if any at all, to the Lord and then wonder why He doesn’t supply their needs. That’s crazy! Big harvests demand big sowings. A farmer doesn’t just plant seed from what he has available. He predicts what his needs will be and then sows enough seed to meet those needs. He borrows money if he has to, but he sows enough seed to meet his projected needs. What are your needs? Is the money you’re giving to the Lord’s work enough to reap the harvest you want? If it isn’t, then you need to increase the money you’re sowing into God’s kingdom.
