Sowing Sparingly.

In 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, Paul talks about to the Corinthian church about giving over and over to him. Paul equated their giving to their spiritual growth in Christ. So, what is sowing all about? Sowing is an action that is taken by a person to produce an effect in their life. We think about farmers sowing crops. This is a good example of what sowing is about. But this isn’t the only example. What people do in their lives is another, whether good or bad. When I began with the Lord, I didn’t know Him very well. I want to know God, my Father, and Jesus, my Brother. So, I studied day and night until I was satisfied I knew Them. This took about 25 years of my life. But all that I very learned is just a faction of who God is. I still study everyday to learn who God is. The effect of my searching out God in my life had produced a strong relationship with both God and Jesus. I sowed my effort into learning about God and it produce the effect I wanted. In verse 7, it says as he has purposed in his heart. It is because this is where the sowing has to take place. Your heart controls everything, your growth in the Lord, your giving to the gospel and your church attendance. Everything we do is control by our heart. If you give sparingly, you will reap sparingly. So, if you aren’t satisfied with your relationship with God, then you know you have to give more of yourself. If the church is in need of laborers or funds, you know that it is up to you to give. It is all accordingly what you purpose in your heart.

Crain Blanchard.
