The Bible is very clear in 2 Corinthians 9:6-11 when it states “he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows generously will also reap generously.” This verse has immense implications in all facets of life, but the following paragraphs will outline how the verses apply in a business setting.
Giving freely and without expectation of return will greatly increase your yield. This not only applies to material resources, but also intellectual as well. Spending time to train those above you, beside you and beneath you will not only allow you to sow more seeds, but also gain a greater harvest to then go forward to bless others. Further, it is essential the seeds that you sow are pure and able to grow in the soil/environment with which your are working. Look at your motives before sowing seed; are you hoping to only line your pockets or do you genuinely wish to help and elevate those around you?
Sowing plentifully allows you to seize opportunities from every situation and circumstance. Rather than planting a few seeds in a pot and hoping to grow enough for yourself, why not scatter throughout the land to provide generously for those farthest from your reach? Again, the key is to be generous with your resources without expectation of return. That being said, you must be intelligent with such resources to not waste your seed on infertile ground. Remember, the more circumstances you are exposed to and seize, the greater your harvest and thus you will enjoy more to then seize greater opportunities and bless others.
Therefore, sow plentifully in all that do.
