6 Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly: if prophecy, [a]according to the proportion of his faith;7 if [b]service, in his serving; or he who teaches, in his teaching;8 or he who exhorts, in his exhortation; he who gives, with [c]liberality; he who [d]leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
9 Letlove be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good.10 Bedevoted to one another in brotherly love; [e]give preference to one another in honor;11 not lagging behind in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;12 rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted to prayer,13 contributing to the needs of the [f]saints, [g]practicing hospitality.
2 Corinthians 9:8-15New American Standard Bible (NASB)
8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed;9 as it is written,
“He scattered abroad, he gave to the poor, His righteousness[a]endures forever.”
10 Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;11 you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.12 For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the [b]saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.13 Because of the proof given by this ministry, they will glorify God for your obedience to your confession of the gospel of Christ and for the liberality of your [c]contribution to them and to all,14 while they also, by prayer on your behalf, yearn for you because of the surpassing grace of God in you.15 Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!
