Also, Using 1 Corinthians 16:2 and 2 Corinthians 8:3; 9:6-11, the New Testament teaching on giving can be summarized with seven P principles!

  1. Periodic. “On the first day of every week” (1 Cor. 16:2).
  2. Personal. “Let each one of you” (1 Cor. 16:2); “let each one” (2 Cor. 9:7).
  3. Planned. “Put aside and save” (1 Cor. 16:2); “do just as he has purposed in his heart” (2 Cor. 9:7).
  4. Proportionate . “As he may prosper” (1 Cor. 16:2)
  5. Plentiful. “He who sows sparingly shall also reap sparingly; and he who sows bountifully shall also reap bountifully” (2 Cor. 9:6); “you will be enriched in everything for all liberality” (2 Cor. 9:11).
  6. Painful. “Beyond their ability they gave of their own accord” (2 Cor. 8:3).
  7. Positive. “Not grudgingly or under compulsion; for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7).
