Reap What You Sow


2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (NKJV) – But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

Students who put in hard work in preparing for their exams will achieve better results than those who don’t study. Similarly, sports people who practice harder improve their game and beat those who don’t practice enough. It’s a simple truth from the Bible, the more you sow, the more you will reap.

When you love what you do, you tend to put in more work and enjoy the hard work. Whereas, when you don’t enjoy an activity, you will find it difficult to work hard for it unless there is a compulsion. But then it is no more fun.

This Bible verse deals with the important topic of reaping what we sow. It is more than just a financial point of view that this Bible verse is pointing out. The more we sow into our relationship with God, the more He will reward us.

How do we sow into our relationship with God? We do this by giving our time, talents, and treasures to God’s work. When we know God and have a personal relationship with Him, we begin to enjoy His presence in our lives. We will enjoy serving Him with the blessings and talents that He has given us and with a heart full of cheer.

Remember that our God is a God of abundance. When we give our little to Him with a cheerful and generous heart, as the Bible says in Luke 6:38, God will give back to us in good measure, shaken together, pressed down, and running over.
