Context Readings

God Loves A Cheerful Giver

5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the brethren, that they would first go unto you and prepare beforehand your blessing, of which ye had given notice before that the same might be ready as a blessing, and not as of covetousness. 6 Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one according as they purpose in their heart, so let them give, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
