|Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.|
|Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.|
|Each one must do just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.|
|2 Corinthians 9:7 |
What will be the results of our giving? We should not give primarily to get, but Paul makes it clear that giving does lead to abundance. Cheerful givers experience God's love in a special way (9:7). They enjoy the spiritual blessing of participating in a rich harvest of righteousness (9:10).
