I think that it can be easily said that 2 Corinthians 9 is largely about giving.
Being givers (or sowers) has taught my family so much about God’s laws of sowing and reaping.
I’ve seen that reaping is usually the focus for many believers, when sowing is grossly neglected.
You can’t get something from nothing in the spiritual or natural.
Have you ever felt that you’ve been stuck in not knowing WHAT to sow besides a money offering?
I was too until a friend asked, “Have you asked God for seed to sow?”
YES! It’s right there!
For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, He will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.
– 2 Corinthians 9:10
The opportunity was there all along!
This is now a way of life for our family.
Our sowing is for the benefit of others.
I started reading A Pocketful of Seeds and was thrilled by one of the taglines: “We can change the world!”
That is so true! The Bible instructs us to do good for all man. THAT is some world-changing action.
I’ve found practical, every day; literally 365 days, worth of seeds to sow in the new devotional, A Pocketful of Seeds by Debbie Johnson.
“Seeds are big deals. None are insignificant, even hen you or I think we have nothing to offer. The Kingdom of God “is like a mustard seed, which, when it is sown on the ground, even though it is smaller than all the [other] seeds that are [sown] on the soil, yet when it is sown, it grows up and becomes larger than all the garden herbs; and it puts out large branches, so that the birds of the sky are able to make nests and live under its shade.” Mark 4:31-32
A Pocketful of Seeds reaches F-A-R beyond our home, church, and familiar places. It calls us to reach out in our community and across the world in ways that we may never have considered.
Even if I don’t plant a seed suggested in A Pocketful of Seeds every day, I’d like to aim for at least once a week! Are you up for the challenge?
To make that easier, I have a copy of A Pocketful of Seeds to giveaway!
