God Gives Most

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:1 -

For it is superfluous for me to write to you about this ministry to the [fn]saints;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:2 - for I know your willingness, of which I boast about you to the Macedonians, namely, that Achaia has been prepared since last year, and your zeal has stirred up most of them.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:3 - But I have sent the brothers, in order that our boasting about you may not prove empty in this case, so that, as I was saying, you will be prepared;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:4 - otherwise, if any Macedonians come with me and find you unprepared, we—not to mention you—would be put to shame by this confidence.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:5 - So I considered it necessary to urge the brothers that they go on ahead to you and arrange in advance your previously promised [fn]generous gift, that the same would be ready as a [fn]generous gift, and not as one grudgingly given due to greediness.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:6 -

Now I say this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows [fn]generously will also reap [fn]generously.

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:7 - Each one must do just as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:8 - And God is able to make all grace overflow to you, so that, always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:9 - as it is written:



Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:10 -

Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;

Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:11 - you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:12 - For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the [fn]saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:13 - Because of the proof given by this ministry, they will glorify God for your obedience to your confession of the gospel of Christ and for the liberality of your [fn]contribution to them and to all,
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:14 - while they also, by prayer on your behalf, yearn for you because of the surpassing grace of God in you.
Unchecked Copy Box2Co 9:15 - Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
