Give A Little Get A Lot
2 Corinthians 9:6: But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
There is an exception to the law in the above passage. If we sow a little with God, we reap a lot. And, of course, if we sow more with Him we reap more.
Luke 19:17: And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.
In Matthew 14:19 Jesus was given five loaves and two fishes and fed thousands. In Matthew 15:34 he was given seven loaves and a few fishes and fed thousands again.
Matthew 13:23: But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
Matthew 19:29: And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name*s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.
2 Peter 1:2: Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
When we learn that sowing a little with God is profitable we should become wise enough to sow more with Him. There is no wiser place to invest our lives and resources than with God. Our lives are such insignificant little things when compared with eternity. When I gave Him my heart I really didn*t give Him very much.
I have come to love a hymn my Pastor has chosen a couple of times lately: Little is Much When God is in it.
