412. Sowing widely



“Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” 2 Corinthians, chapter 9, verse 6

It’s Paul who tells us that! It’s true in the garden as in life. The more we sow what we have and who we are, even with smaller seeds, the more we’ll harvest or others will reap the fruit of our labour. Let’s check that we receive everything from Jesus:
“For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor although he was rich, so that by his poverty you might become rich.” 2 Corinthians, chapter 8, verse 9

Jesus confirms it to us, he knows that the Father will restore it to us a hundredfold:
“When you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you may not appear to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.” Matthew, chapter 6, verse 17

Let’s offer what is most precious for a mission that is precious to God, for the salvation of all people. God gives to us accordingly to what we offer of him.
