But someone will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not brought to life, unless it dies first; and that which thou sowest, thou sowest not the body that shall be, but bare grain: it may be of wheat or of some other grain;read more.
but God gives it a body as it has pleased him, and to each seed its own body. All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the heavenly glory is one thing, and the earthly glory is another. One thing is the glory of the sun, and another the glory of the moon, and another the glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it shall be raised in incorruption; it is sown in dishonour, it shall be raised with glory; it is sown in weakness, it shall be raised with power; it is sown a natural body, it shall be raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

And God is able to make all grace abound in you that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:read more.
As it is written, He has dispersed abroad; he has given to the poor; his righteousness remains for ever. Now he that supplies seed to the sower shall also supply bread for food and shall multiply your seed sown and shall increase the growing of the fruits of your righteousness, so that being enriched in everything to all generosity, which works out through us thanksgiving unto God.
