But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
– 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
I was once chastised by another believer for exhorting someone to financially give liberally and cheerfully. Though many in our American Christian context in the 21st century are very uneasy to discuss such things, Paul was not hung up on doing so. It is important to acknowledge that the Scriptures speak openly about giving as generosity is a discipleship issue. Don’t miss it; God loves a cheerful giver.
