It makes no sense for a farmer to go into his field and expect to have vegetables without planting seeds. If he wants tomatoes, he’ll have to plant tomatoes seeds. If he wants cabbage, he has to plant cabbage seeds. If it makes no sense for a farmer, why do some of us still expect to have financial increase without planting financial seed into the Kingdom?

When we give, we’re giving to God and telling Him thank you. When we give, we’re also investing in our future. God promised that He’ll give it back to us in an overflowing manner (Luke 6:38). He promised all our needs are met (Philippians 4:18-19). He promised protection when we give (Malachi 3:10-12).

So, don’t get deceived into thinking that giving is for the foolish. We know what we’re doing. We’re setting up ourselves for a prosperous future.

2 Corinthians 9:7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
