Truth About Sowing and Reaping
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7 (NIV)
INVEST TO REAP YOUR FUTURE HARVEST!
“He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.” Luke 21:2-4 (NIV)
YOUR RECEIVING DEPENDS ON YOUR GIVING!
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (NIV)
YOU WILL REAP FROM THE PLACE YOU SOW!
“Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:8-9 (NIV)
