2 Corinthians 8.7-15

7You excel in everything in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in utmoseagerness, and in our love for you so we want you to excel also in thigenerous undertaking. 8I do not say this as a command, but I am testing the genuineness of youlove against the earnestness of others. 9For you know the generous act of ouLord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poorso that by his poverty you might become rich. 10And in this matter I am givinmy advice: it is appropriate for you who began last year not only to dsomething but even to desire to do something 11now finish doing it, so thayour eagerness may be matched by completing it according to your means. 12Foif the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has not according to what one does not have. 13I do not mean that there should brelief for others and pressure on you, but it is a question of a fair balancbetween 14your present abundance and their need, so that their abundance may bfor your need, in order that there may be a fair balance. 15As it is written
The one who had much did not have too muc
and the one who had little did not have too little.
