Remember this. Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. – 2 Corinthians 9:6
Although many of the Bible’s teachings are not practiced in the business world today, this principle is adopted regularly. Many business investors use the motto: Invest a little, make a little…invest a lot, make a lot! Although this principle has worked for some people, it has been a catastrophe for others who invested in the wrong thing. Investing can be risky if you don’t understand what you are investing in. The beauty of giving to Kingdom work is that you’re investing in an unchanging God who freely gives eternal life for those who seek Him.
God calls us not only to give, but to give generously and for the right reasons. King Solomon expressed the principle of generosity in Proverbs 11:25, Be generous to others and you’ll grow prosperous; refresh others, and you’ll be refreshed. God does not want us to give with a selfish intent. Galatians 6:7-8 warns, Don’t make a mistake: you can’t fool God. Whatever you sow, you’ll reap. If you sow to please your own flesh, you will from your flesh reap destruction. 2 Corinthians 9:12-15 also warns us not to expect to be wealthy through our giving. Instead, our gifts will praise God and help others who receive our gifts. When we bless others, we also will be blessed, not necessarily with earthly gifts, but with spiritual rewards.
