Harvest Size is Dependent on Seed Value
Remember this: The farmer who plants a few seeds will have a very small harvest. But the farmer who plants because he has received God's blessings will receive a harvest of God's blessings in return. (2 Cor 9:6 GW)

In the natural realm, we understand that if a farmer does not plant today, he will not reap tomorrow. Moreover, when a planter uses inferior and low-quality seeds, the harvest will be affected. It’s either the entire yield is poor in quality, or the cream of the crop is small.

Defining a Valuable Seed
Heaven’s economy is different from our world system. The Lord of the Harvest, in all His justness and fairness, does not see the value of a seed like we do.

We easily measure in amounts, and we easily contrast the buying power of a 100 bill to a 1 coin. But this is not the eternal basis of value.

The Most Generous Giver of All
Our Lord Jesus was and is nosey about offerings. He observed the givers:
He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. "I tell you the truth," he said, "this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on." (Luke 21:2-4 NIV) 

Just how could two coins amount to be “more than all the others?” Because God counts our generosity – how much we have left for ourselves. Others give out of their surplus, an amount that won’t affect them. But giving out of our poverty means that we are using more faith – a deep trust in God to provide for the next meal, and faith to invest for continual provision for the future.

Now, there’s nothing wrong in giving out of our surplus. God wants us to prosper so that we could easily give and share in every opportunity. What we are measuring here is the power of our personal seed at any given time. And because God does not look at amounts but on our generosity, then a 100 cash offering from a 1000 wage is so much powerful and valuable than a 10,000 offering from a million in the bank account. Such big offerings in proportion to what’s left are risky, and thus require more faith in and dependence on God.

But we don’t conclude that we should remain poor and needy so as to depend on God our whole lives. Jesus came to preach the gospel to the poor so that they don’t have to be poor anymore.

Remember that God wants us to prosper in that level of having an abundance to give for every good work.

Giving out of poverty means we have a chance in life. Giving is the key to break poverty off our backs. Seeds are highly valuable and powerful when it is a generous amount. And God takes notice and commends such gift and giver.

What God desires is that we start sowing in whatever level we are, break free from the bondage of poverty, and as God blesses us with bounty, we remain faithful to Him by continually sowing our seeds and increase our faith to also increase the amount of our seed to give to every opportunity.

There are a lot of opportunities out there for giving. Jesus promised that there will always be some poor people among us. Plus the occurrence of natural disasters and calamities that affect our brothers and sisters in the Lord.

We should never tire in giving. We should never grow weary in doing good.

Our seeds become powerful and effective for a 30, 60 and a hundredfold return when we sow in faith.
