Giving Cheerfully - 2Cor.9:7

2Cor.9:7 "God loves a cheerful giver."
A cheerful receiver will also be a cheerful giver. He is first of all a grateful person, like the one leper who returned to Jesus to give thanks. Friendship involves both giving and receiving. A person who only receives but never gives is not being a friend. Beware of chronic borrowers, who only make you give but are unwilling to give. Beware also of those who give in order to make you indebted to give. God doesn't give to everybody that asks anything; so, you needn't. God receives; so must we: for, receiving indicates acceptance. God gives; so must we: for, giving indicates concern and care.
