VerseD: 2 Corinthians 9:6

The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

2 Corinthians 9:6, ESV

Paul is not necessarily promising financial peace and prosperity for our generous giving. Rather, it is the promise that our giving shows the righteousness of Christ growing abundantly within us.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 9:7

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Corinthians 9:7, ESV

The tithe was essentially a tax to pay for the Temple and priests in Israel.

Now, we give because we love Christ’s Church and want to support the spread of the Gospel. Ten percent can be a guide to giving, not necessarily the standard.
