Tony Evans Speaks on Christian Stewardship in Finances

If there is no spiritual investment, why are you expecting a spiritual return? You reap what you sow. - Tony Evans


A lot of Christians expect a harvest from God in their lives related to their finances yet are not willing to sow any seeds for the kingdom. They simply do not understand the law of the harvest. Just like in farming, if you want something to come up out of the ground, you have to first put something inside of the ground. You cannot harvest from seedless ground.

John tells us,

John 12:24

For a seed to be sown, you must give up your own wants and desires for that seed. It must “die” to you in order to bear fruit thus becoming useful to you and others later on for the kingdom. Sowing is what sets the harvest in motion.

Suppose a farmer were to say,

This year I am not going to sow any seeds in my 80 acres of land, but I am trusting God for a full crop of corn because I know that He can do exceedingly abundant over all I can ask or imagine.

If you heard the farmer say that, you would assume that the farmer had lost his mind. He can’t expect his 80-acres of farmland to produce even one stalk of corn if he doesn’t take the time and effort to sow first.

Yet this is what many people do with regard to their finances. They come to church, or spend time with God, and ask Him to give them a harvest of great financial gain without being willing to even sow a small seed here or there. If you want a harvest, you have to sow. It is as simple and straightforward as that.

So God Gave the Farmer a Seed
