2 Corinthians 9 - Key

v6

But this [I say], He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.

Besides for giving money to people, this can also apply to other things, such as preaching the gospel and working for Christ. If we limit our efforts, we limit our outcome. We should serve Christ bountifully, from our hearts.

Application
v7

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Serving the Lord should be our delight, not a drudgery. When I'm tempted to think that spending time with the Lord is boring, I'll arrange it a little bit to be more enjoyable--because there's nothing wrong with enjoying serving the Lord.
