May God give us eyes to see and understand.
"2 Corinthians 9:6-7 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver."
That scripture talks about sowing and reaping and it also talks about how it affects giving.
You SOW small and you REAP small so therefore you GIVE from your small harvest.
You SOW big and you REAP big therefore you GIVE from your big harvest.
The very same way Cain and Abel sowed, Cain being a tiller of the ground and Abel being a keeper of sheep and they REAPED a harvest after which they GAVE offerings out of their harvest.
Scriptures talk about the relationship between sowing and reaping and how it affects giving.
Alas, we have thrown away the very importance of sowing and declared that giving is equal to sowing. Ignorance gone on rampage.
Sowing comes before Giving. You SOW, you REAP then you GIVE.
