“Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” – 2 Corinthians 9:6
Interestingly, our world has adopted and often quotes the biblical principle of, “You reap what you sow” (Ps. 126:5; Prov. 22;8). Paul knew this principle as well. Think about it. If a farmer wanted to have a crop, he had to sow as much seed as possible. If he didn’t sow a lot of seed, the chances of him getting a full crop were slim. He didn’t withhold the seed. He cast out as much as he could. And applied to our lives as Jesus followers, it begs the question, “Are we living generously with our time, talent, and treasure to see God’s Kingdom expanded all over the earth?” Put negatively, “Do we shrink back from living generously because we desire our own comfort over God’s call to engage in the mission?”
What hinders you personally from living generously with your time, talent, and treasure?
