2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:6‬ Devotional

2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:6‬ ‭Daily Devotional

 

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”

‭‭– ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:6‬ 

Observations:

This verse is clearly about generosity. Paul, the author, is using an agricultural metaphor that may not translate well to us anymore, but the principle remains. When you’re stingy, you get stinginess in return. When you’re generous, you receive generously. It’s a simple concept, but it can be difficult to do.

Applications:

In order to apply this verse, you need to be willing to do something that doesn’t make sense. Give more. You will receive when you’re generous. It’s counterintuitive, but it will happen. However, this is not a gospel of prosperity. I can’t say, “Give $100 and God will bless you with $1,000.” That’s probably not going to happen. But what God will do is soften your heart to receive the full life he has for you.

Prayer:

Father, thank you for your example when it comes to generosity. Help me to match your generosity. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
