Context Readings

God Loves A Cheerful Giver

5 That is why I have thought it necessary to ask these brothers to go on in advance and get your promised contribution ready in good time. I want it to be forthcoming as a generous gift, not as money wrung out of you. 6 Mark this: he who sows sparingly will reap sparingly, and he who sows generously will reap a generous harvest. 7 Everyone is to give what he has made up his mind to give; there is to be no grudging or compulsion about it, for God loves the giver who gives cheerfully.
