He that soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he that soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully” (2 Cor. 9:6).
This Scripture also relates to the principle of Christian finances.
Christians give money but they do not throw it away. It is not he who
throws away that shall receive more; nor is it that he who throws
away less shall receive less. What God says is that he who sows
bountifully shall reap bountifully and also he who sows sparingly
shall reap sparingly. Do you expect your money to grow? If you do,
go and sow it. If you sow, the money will grow. Otherwise it will
remain the same.
Brothers and sisters, can we be so foolish as to reap where we
have not sown? Many prayers for supply are unanswered because we
are hard men, reaping where we did not sow and gathering where we
did not scatter. Why not take out a little money and sow it? Why not
sow your money to many brothers and sisters who are in distress.
Then you may reap afterward. He who holds his money tightly in his
hand will not gain anything.
