GIVING AND SOWING – Ikechukwu Peter

When it comes to the kingdom with respect to money or material..’giving’ is the preferred language and not sowing. Sowing is a language that is more related with a transactional approach than an expression of love.

A brother gives a suit to a fellow brother…he tells him; bro I sow this into your life…the mind set here is what he will reap after the sowing. When will we start giving out to brethren because we love them and not just for what the seed will produce?….you call him and say, bro I give you this….you are a blessing and I love you.

Whatever we give with love automatically turns into a seed, but what we sow doesn’t automatically translate into love.

God didn’t sow HIS son…He gave Him, and that gift automatically became a seed that produced the Church of which you are part of. The language of the Church should be giving and not sowing.

Remember, when you give in love, it automatically turns into a good seed. God doesn’t love big sowing but a cheerful giving;

2 Corinthians 9:7
King James Version
7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

It didn’t say God loves a cheerful sower but a cheerful giver.

A giver is not motivated by the harvest but by the heart of love.

When the Bible talks about bountiful sowing, it has nothing to do with the size of the gift but the size of the love that expresses the action. An example of this is the widow that gave the smallest in size but with the biggest size of love. What gives value to your offering in the sight of the immortals is not the quantity but the love that motivated it.

Sowing sparingly means giving grudgingly or with a business mindset.

Give because you love God and I can assure you that the harvest will be 100%.
