1. You must learn to be a giver. It will come back to you.
Give and it will be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
(Luke 6:38)
2. Your return will come as you meet two Bible conditions:
  • You must cast your bread on every wave.
  • After many days, it will come back to you.
Cast thy bread upon the waters; for thou shalt find it after many days.
(Eccl. 11:10)
3. Your progress will be hindered as a good spiritual farmer if you look at situations or reasons why you shouldn't give and receive.
He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.
(Eccl. 11:4)
4. Your harvest amount depends on the amount you give. You purpose in your heart what you will reap by the amount you sow.
But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
(2 Cor. 9:6-7)
5. The words of your mouth can ruin your planted seed and stop the blessing of the Lord upon your fields.
Your words have been stout against me, saith the Lord. Yet ye say, What have we spoken so much against thee? Ye have said, It is vain to serve God: and what profit is it that we have kept his ordinance, and that we have walked mournfully before the Lord of hosts?
(Mal. 3:13-14)
6. Be wise where you sow your seed. Whatever field you put it in is the field you'll reap it in. You are the sower. Sow in good ground according to the instructions found in your Bible.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
(Gal. 6:9)
7. You must be very, very consistent in giving and confessing. You will reap much if you don't grow tired or faint.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
(Gal. 6:9)
8. Tithing is not the same as giving. Tithing is presenting back to God what is already His. Giving is offering some of what is yours. Giving will determine the amount you harvest, but tithing will protect it until harvest day.
  • Tithing insures your return.
  • It is like an insurance policy.
  • The devourer is rebuked for you.
  • Your fruit will not be destroyed.
And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.
(Mal. 3:11)
9. Giving to the gospel will give you a hundred-fold return in this lifetime.
And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's.

But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sister, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
(Mark 10:29-30)
10. Giving to the poor is like lending to the Lord. He will repay you in perfect time. It is a perfect investment with no risks.
He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
(Prov. 19:17)
11. Offerings are made to ministries to help pay for buildings and to make sanctuaries where people can come worship the Lord. There are many different reasons to give offerings to the different ministries.
And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring me an offering: of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering.
(Ex. 25:1-2)

And they received of Moses all the offering, which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of the sanctuary, to make it withal. And they brought yet unto him free offerings every morning.

And all the wise men, that wrought all the work of the sanctuary, came every man from his work which they made; And they spake unto Moses, saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the Lord commanded to make.

And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering of the sanctuary. So the people were restrained from bringing. For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work to make it, and too much.
(Ex. 36:3-7)
