Now I say this: (A)the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows [a]generously will also reap [b]generously. Each one must do just as he has decided in his heart, not (B)reluctantly or under compulsion, for (C)God loves a cheerful giver. And (D)God is able to make all grace overflow to you, so that, always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; as it is written:

(E)He scattered abroad, he gave to the poor,
His righteousness [c]endures forever.”

10 Now He who supplies (F)seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and (G)increase the harvest of your righteousness; 11 you will be (H)enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing (I)thanksgiving to God.
