Honour the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops.
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. – On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up…
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continued to help them.
Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, which is your spiritual worship. – For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. – So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
