It is important to note that every aspect of our life and every moment of our time, we are sowing and reaping. The big question is this, “Are you a faithful and wise sower or an unfaithful and foolish sower?” To sow sparingly is to sow from a heart that deep down wants to give little or nothing at all.
However, to sow bountifully is to sow from a heart that deep down wants to give as much as possible. A bountiful heart is a heart that has been dedicated to the service of the Lord. This heart seeks ways how to give as much as possible, rather than how to keep back as much as possible. The law of sowing and reaping dictates not negotiates, three powerful things:
- You will reap what you sow.
- You will reap after you sow.
- You will reap more than you sow.
“I never would have been able to tithe the first million dollars I ever made if I had not tithed my first salary, which was $1.50 per week.” J D Rockefeller
Do you sow bountifully into the eight areas of your life consistently?
