People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 9:6

2Co 9:6 He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly, etc. Giving is not a sacrifice, but rather a sowing. As the farmer gives his seed to the earth, and then reaps as he has sown, so giving is a sowing. If there is a spare sowing, there will be spare reaping; if liberal sowing, liberal reaping. See the same principle expressed in Ex 25:2 1Ch 29:14,17 Ps 102:9 Lu 6:38 Ac 20:35. The lesson of this verse is, give generously. The next verse teaches how to give.

It has been a long time I have wanted to look at different teachings about tithes and offering since before I had only understood that there is just one scripture about it. I'm sure I am going to understand better as time goes on.

"Praise God everything about you seems to make sense so who would separate me from you and you never lie" I LOVE YOU.

This verse just right on me since it's really strengthen me not to be grumble, but always thankful to Him. Currently, this verse is really His plan on me. Anybody else feels like that? Just do like written and believe that promise.
