Bible: 2 Corinthians 8:10-15

8:10 So here is my opinion on this matter: It is to your advantage, since you 1  made a good start last year both in your giving and your desire to give, 8:11 to finish what you started, 2  so that just as you wanted to do it eagerly, 3  you can also complete it 4  according to your means. 5  8:12 For if the eagerness is present, the gift itself 6  is acceptable according to whatever one has, not according to what he does not have. 8:13 For I do not say this so there would be relief for others and suffering for you, but as a matter of equality. 8:14 At the present time, your abundance will meet their need, 7  so that one day their abundance may also meet your need, and thus there may be equality, 8:15 as it is written: “The one who gathered 8  much did not have too much, and the one who gathered little did not have too little.” 9
