Sow Your 'Seed'? Teaching, Turn Here!



2 Corinthians 9:6-15

The Cheerful Giver

6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 9 As it is written:

“He has dispersed abroad,
He has given to the poor;
His righteousness endures forever.”[b]

10 Now may[c] He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, 11 while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. 12 For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God, 13 while, through the proof of this ministry, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal sharing with them and all men, 14 and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding grace of God in you. 15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!

Now the question here is...Are you a 'sower'?  What does a farmer do when he has seed?  Does he go and buy a motorcycle?  A jet?  Or does he plant in the ground?

You= Sower.  Bread for food and seed= Met needs for the SAINTS, SHARING WITH 'THEM' and ALL MEN.

This gift is indescribable because if God chooses you to be a sower you can cloth the poor, feed the hungry, and administer and supply the needs of the saints!  NOT to 'sow your seed' to some TV ministry.

And God will keep supplying seed to the sower and bread for food.

Galatians 6:8

8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.

Need I say more?
