2 Corinthians 9:10-11
“Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.”
-Apostle Paul applauds the Corinthians for their generosity & boasts to the Macedonias about their giving. He encourages them to continue sowing seed by giving & prays for them to bear more fruits. He places a caution though; that giving should be voluntary as one purposes in their hearts, not because of necessity or grudgingly for God loves a cheerful giver (2 Cor 9:7). A sower sows seeds by faith hoping for a bounty harvest in the future. Abraham sowed seeds of faith in his life time & received the fruit of righteousness for many nations through Christ (Rom 4:22-25). Faith in God therefore helps us to bear much fruit which is pleasing to Him & an account of righteousness, for He is the rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Heb 11:6). Through faith in God therefore, we receive fruits when we sow & obtain freedom in Christ Jesus.
Oh God Almighty Father; full of majesty & love, we adore You & glorify Your holy name. We humbly ask You to increase our faith in You Father; in our daily lives as we sow seeds with love that we may bear much fruit for our benefit & all those who depend on us, not for self exultation but for the glory of Your name. Help us Father to give more, to rely more on Your grace, to value humility more & to seek You first in all things. Search our hearts Lord & increase the fruit of righteousness in us; that we may be enriched in all things by Your grace & remain in liberty forevermore. Amen
