Christians should give generously - 2 Corinthians 9:6

Taking an analogy from the grain fields that surrounded the city on three sides, Paul reminded the Corinthians of two of the most basic truths of farming: If you want a harvest, you must first plant seed, and if you want a large harvest, you must plant much seed. With these words Paul was instructing the Corinthians in two profound truths about the Christian life: first, giving should be as much a part of a Christian’s life as sowing seed is a part of the farmer’s life. By definition, farmers are seed planters; just as fundamentally, Christians are to be givers. Jesus said that we could give something as small as a cup of water in His name and it would someday be rewarded by God (Matt. 10:42). Secondly, Paul tells the Corinthians that Christians should share their money as well. And just as truly as with the farmer’s seed, a Christian’s generous use of money to support godly causes produces a generous harvest of blessing.
