The one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
- 2 Corinthians 9:6
This obviously proverbial saying had crept into the consciousness of Paul, as a city person. However, he knew enough from his travels to recognize that the farmer’s generous hand was the one that would be rewarded come harvest time. What does this mean for us? Can we afford to sprinkle more seeds of understanding, forgiveness, compassion, across our fields of endeavor or are we afraid to give lest we lack at some future moment?
Can we sow more freely on today’s field?
