Other than having wealth consciousness, what is the reason why some people prosper more than others?
The answer is one word: Sowing
The real secret is this, it is not just sowing anywhere, but it is sowing specifically into the Kingdom of God.
Jesus said “Every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for MY NAME’S SAKE, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.”
Whatever you give for the sake of Jesus, and for the Gospel, you will receive a multiplied return. It is because you are helping further the work of the Lord God in this world. Of course, you might say that the universal law of giving and receiving would mean that you could give to anywhere and receive a return. But this is DIFFERENT. Jesus himself said whatever you give for “His Name’s Sake.” It has a much greater effect when you give specifically to places that minister the Gospel of salvation.
Whether you are a believer in Jesus Christ or not, you can sow into His Kingdom and be blessed. The LORD said “Them that honour me I will honour.”
Once you have sown, expect to receive a harvest. If you practice God’s Law of Sowing and Reaping by sowing and expecting to reap a harvest, and then sowing out of that harvest and reaping from it, and sowing again, etc, you will experience a life of more and more abundance!
The act of sowing and the EXPECTATION of receiving a harvest is the important thing. You must sow and you must mentally reap, in order to reap.
The tithe is one tenth of all your increase. Give a tenth of your income this month to a spiritual cause with a consciousness of receiving much more, and see what happens.
Malachi 3:10 “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”
If you have been giving your tithe, then give an offering beyond that and see what happens.
2 Corinthians 9:6 “He who sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he who sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully.”
There are TWO Criteria to determine the PLACE or the PERSON you sow into.
1. The first criterion is internal: You must sow where God inspires you to sow, meaning you would have an inner feeling of “wanting to” sow to this place or this person.
2. The second criterion is external: You must sow into GOOD GROUND. Good ground is a place that vibrates positive energies of love, joy, peace and spiritual inspiration and fulfillment. Good Ground is a place that is already fruitful with the signs of abundance and contributing to the good of others and itself. If you can see that place or that person in a position where good things are working in that area, then sow into that abundance and you will receive from that same abundance that place or person is having.
You must sow where you can visibly see or feel the grace of God, or the glory of God manifesting in that place or that person. You can SEE and FEEL God’s favor, grace or glory being present in that MINISTRY or MINISTER Clearly. If you can see that place or that person in a position where God is already blessing them and working in that area, then sow into that grace/glory and you will receive from that same grace/glory that place or person is having.
So to sum it up: 1. Give to God which is sowing into His Kingdom for His Name’s Sake and for the Gospel’s Sake. 2. Give especially to places and people that are Good Ground where the fruits of abundance and greater good is showing. 3. Give one tenth of your income as the tithe, give beyond the tithe as an offering. 4. Get into reaping mode and expect a harvest of multiplied return to come your way.
Why is it good to sow more than 10 percent of your income? It is because some of the financial increase that comes into your life may not be in the form of money, but in other things such as receiving a car, house, jewelry or some other asset as a gift from someone else. When you convert those things into money later on, you could also tithe on that money. But if you already tithe on it beforehand, then that giving becomes an offering instead of a tithe. Either way, it is always better to sow more than 10 percent; 20 percent would be a good figure; and also to even give on top of that. Try the combination of tithing 10 percent for tangible monetary increase, giving another 10 percent for intangible monetary increase, and giving another 10 percent as an offering or seeding. That makes a total combination of 30 percent of your income. Also only give when you have the faith or can feel good with the amount you are giving. You can increase the percentage as you become more able.
Sowing and Reaping is the reason why many people prosper greatly in this world, even though they might give you many other reasons for their wealth. UNDERLYING it all, it is their sowing, whether they mention it or not.
Sowing is also the Key to making the two principles of Think and Grow Rich work for you. The two principles of Think and Grow Rich are:
1. Desiring to have money, or “Money Consciousness”.
2. Expecting to receive that money, and KNOWING it is yours to possess.
Sowing enables you to get into Reaping mode (Money Consciousness), and expecting to receive a harvest with the KNOWING that it will come to you.
Sowing is not just a physical but a SPIRITUAL thing. It will facilitate in ACTIVATING in your Consciousness certain Vibrations of Desiring and Expectation/Knowing of greater wealth/abundance in your life MUCH MORE powerfully and easily than if you were to do it without sowing. Sowing and Reaping is God’s Spiritual Law and will work in you in spiritual ways if you act in accordance with this Law. This creates changes in Consciousness which creates changes in your external world.
When you tithe or sow your money, you open up the energy flow for more abundance to come in. You are blessed with spiritual blessings. Spiritual is energetic. Being able to attract and create money requires energy. You will be blessed with situations, things and people that will bring you joy, love and happiness. This will cause you to perform better at work, function better and achieve more. You will be blessed with the feelings of motivation, enthusiasm, aliveness, and vitality.
Your consciousness will be raised to a higher vibratory rate. You will have creativity and ideas that make your life better, or provide some use that will benefit you in some way that lead to increased abundance. The right energies will come to make you more magnetic to abundance. Opportunities will come your way, doors will open, and grace and favor will be upon you. There will be more ease and effortlessness. Your actions will reap bigger or better results. You will be guided in the right way. All the things that support your abundance will be present. Even resources, things and money will be supplied to you. All these things will lead to your increase in abundance.
Another way to empower your giving is to combine intent with action. Ask God to bless your financial gift, and also to bless the person or place you give it to. Give with the intent to bless, and feel it. Combining positive feelings of love and goodwill with your giving will energize your gift with power that will be reflected back towards you from above. Bless others and you bless yourself.
Sowing is how you show that you love God more than money. Money is good, but God is the Total Good. Nothing wrong with loving money, but it is important to love God more than money. Loving money more than God is the root of all evil, because that is not the natural order of things. What you give to God becomes included in the Total Good. God’s spiritual law of Sowing and Reaping is how you make use of money in a godly manner. If the primary portion is holy, the whole is holy.
God’s Law of Sowing and Reaping also works in accordance with the Law of Attraction (Like Attracts Like), which is why it is logical. You get what you give. Want more wealth? Start sowing today in accordance with the principles listed here, and reap likewise!
