6But this I say, He which sows sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which sows bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 7Every man according as he purposes in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loves a cheerful giver. 8And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: 9(As it is written, He has dispersed abroad; he has given to the poor: his righteousness remains for ever. 10Now he that ministers seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) 11Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causes through us thanksgiving to God. 12For the administration of this service not only supplies the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings to God; 13Whiles by the experiment of this ministration they glorify God for your professed subjection to the gospel of Christ, and for your liberal distribution to them, and to all men; 14And by their prayer for you, which long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you. 15Thanks be to God for his unspeakable gift.
