Even though the second farmer thought he was going to get a more fruitful crop, he didn't invest in the right area. He was stingy with the care and quality of what he was sowing. At times we try and get away with just doing the bare minimum and not taking utilising what we have. We become caught up in doing heaps of things without putting time and care into them; they end up lacking in quality.
When it comes to giving or working or studying or whatever it is that you do, God cares about the quality or the heart behind what you do. Whether it’s giving your weekly tithe at church or finishing a project, give your best. This may mean you have to sacrifices something or prioritise you time better. Be generous with what you give of yourself. In this you will reap a generous reward.
2 Corinthians 9: 6-7
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
