2 Corinthians 9
1 Now concerning the ministering to the saints, it is superfluous for me to
write to you. 2 For I know the forwardness of your thinking, for which I boast
of you to those of Macedonia that Achaia was ready a year ago; and your zeal
hath called forth very many. 3 Yet I have sent the brethren, lest our boasting
of you on this account should be in vain, that, as I said, ye may be ready; 4
lest it might happen, if those of Macedonia come with me and find you
unprepared, that we (that we say not "ye") should be ashamed in this
same confident boasting. 5 Therefore I thought it necessary to exhort the
brethren to go ahead unto you and make up your bounty beforehand (whereof ye had
notice beforehand), that the same might be ready as a matter of bounty, and not
as of covetousness.
6 But this I say: He who soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly, and he
who soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 7 As every man purposeth in
his heart, so let him give, not grudgingly or out of compulsion; for God loveth
the cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that
ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound in every good work.
9 As it is written:
"He hath dispersed abroad, he hath given to the poor;
his righteousness remaineth for ever."
10 Now may He that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your
food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your
righteousness, 11 ye being enriched in everything to all bountifulness, which
causeth through us thanksgiving to God. 12 For the administration of this
service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also in much
thanksgiving unto God, 13 while by the experience of this ministration they
glorify God for your freely declared subjection unto the Gospel of Christ, and
for your liberal distribution unto them and unto all men, 14 and by their prayer
for you, they who long after you for the exceeding grace of God in you.
15 Thanks be unto God for His unspeakable gift!
1 Praise ye the LORD!
Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in
2 His seed shall be mighty upon the earth;
the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches shall be in his house,
and his righteousness endureth for ever.
4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the
he is gracious and full of compassion and righteous.
5 A good man showeth favor and lendeth;
he will guide his affairs with discretion.
6 Surely he shall not be moved forever;
the righteous shall be held in everlasting remembrance.
7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings;
his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.
8 His heart is established;
he shall not be afraid until he sees his desires upon his enemies.
9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness
endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honor.
10 The wicked shall see it and be grieved, he shall
gnash with his teeth and melt away;
the desire of the wicked shall perish.
Words of Worship - John
"If a man love Me, he
will keep My words; and My Father will love him, and
We will come unto him and make Our abode with him.
Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18
1 "Take heed that ye do not your
almsgiving before men, to be seen by them; otherwise ye have no reward from
your Father who is in Heaven. 2 Therefore when thou givest thine alms, do not
sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the
streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, they have
their reward. 3 But when thou givest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy
right hand doeth, 4 that thine almsgiving may be in secret; and thy Father who
seeth in secret, Himself shall reward thee openly.
5 "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not
be as the hypocrites are. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and
on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Verily I say unto
you, they have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy
closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret;
and thy Father who seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
16 "Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the
hypocrites, of a sad countenance. For they disfigure
their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast.
Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. 17 But
thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head and wash thy
face, 18 that thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy
Father who is in secret; and thy Father, who seeth in
secret, shall reward thee openly.
Words of Wisdom - Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
for this is the whole duty of man.
For God shall bring every work into judgment, including every secret
whether it be good or whether it be evil.
Morals & Values - Matthew 5:23-24
Therefore if thou bring thy
gift to the altar and there rememberest that thy brother hath aught against thee, leave there thy
gift before the altar, and go thy way. First be reconciled to thy
brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
