Being fruitful is the will of God for everyone of us. Giving is one of the ways we can bear financial and spiritual fruits. When you start bearing fruits, God prunes you and this increases your capacity to produce more fruits.
I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit (John 15:1-2).
ASSURANCE OF SOWING & HARVESTING
As long as the world exists, there will be a time for planting and a time for harvest. There will always be cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night (Genesis 8:22 GNB), Luke 6:38. Give and it shall be given unto you.
GIVE/SOW MANY TIMES AND OFTEN
A giver is like a farmer who spreads the seeds in his farm. Often the farmer plants many seeds, WHY?. He takes precautions just incase the birds, worms eats some or bad seeds doesn’t germinates..at least some will.
“Do your sowing in the morning and in the evening, too. You never know whether it will all grow well or whether one sowing will do better than the other.” Ecclesiastes 11:6 GNB. Some of our giving don’t succeed, often because of Heart status/motives…so if you give often..Some will succeed. But if you only give one and it fails. You are screwed.
DONT WAIT FOR THE RIGHT TIME
If you wait until the wind and the weather are just right, you will never sow anything and never harvest anything. Giving is a spiritual principle…it’s not dependent on circumstances. Some only give when they have a lot of money/things…that’s wrong. Don’t wait to have a lot, give the little and God will multiply, increase your capacity to give more. Ecclesiastes 11:4 GNB.
THE BLESSINGS IS TO THE GIVER
The promised blessing isn’t to the receiver but to the giver. Jesus says, “…It is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35).
GRACE TO THE GIVER
2 Corinthians 9:8 says, “And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]” (AMP).
GOD LOVES A CHEERFUL GIVER
2 Corinthians 9:7 says, “…God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, prompt to do it) giver [whose heart is in his giving].”
GIVING IS NOT ABOUT MONEY ONLY
Jesus didn’t say “give money,” He said “Give!” Whatever good thing you desire in your life, sow the seed (Phones, clothes, cars, money etc) of it into the lives of others and it’ll be multiplied in your own life.
DO WHAT YOU WANT PEOPLE TO DO YOU
Remember His words: “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them…” (Matthew 7:12). It’s wickedness to expect things from people when you don’t give to people.
GIVING INCREASES FRUIT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (spiritual progress)
“Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness” (2 Corinthians 9:10). GIVING connects you and everything that concerns you with God’s Spirit, Remember Solomon sacrificed 1000 bulls and God came by night to ask him what he wants..God made him wise.
