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. 7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: 9 (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever. 10 Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) 11 Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.
The seed system is the law that the whole Creation was set up to run by. It propogates every life form on Earth. Plant life, animal life, human life, and spiritual life (Genesis 1:11, 12, 20-29; 1 Peter 1:23). This principle of the seed has always been God’s way to begin things, reproduce, and multiply. Every seed is pre-programmed to re[produce, multiply or increase; hence, a seed is anything that can become more. Jesus used the seed principle to teach on the Word of God producing fruit in our lives as well as the spiritual Kingdom of God expanding and multiplying in the Earth (Mark 4). He is also the seed God would use to bruise satan’s head in redemption (Gen. 3:15) and become the seed of the born again spirit within a believer. His nature was reproduced in us. The Holy Spirit also through the Apostle Paul made an application of the seed principle to giving or sowing in 2 Corinthians 9:6-11.
He called sowing in verse six giving in verse seven and he that soweth as a giver. Giving under grace is governed by the law of sowing and reaping. Grace abounds toward us financially to make us able to abound to every good work. True prosperity is “having” for ‘giving.” God abounding toward us with His generosity and making us generous. Like everything governed by the seed principle, there is a direct connection to how we reap by how we sow. He that sows sparingly shal reap sparingly; he that sows bountifully shall reap bountifully.
The Spirit of God further adds to the Apostle Paul that God’s grace works and abounds toward our life financially by providing (furnishing; supplying) for us SEED for sowing and BREAD for food. Provision to sow from and provisions to live on or consume. He then multiplies our seed sown and increase the spiritual fruit in our lives. His grace helps us meet the needs of others, causes thanksgiving to be given to God, and multiplies our seed sown. If we eat all of the provision and not use it to sow seed that will be the most it will ever be. Only using it as seed does it have the power to become more.
