2 Corinthians 8:1-15
Just to let you know, neighboring churches have shown abundant generosity. They shared much in the face of great affliction — giving beyond their means. They should be a model for you. You have demonstrated faithfulness, wisdom, and understanding. Now, to complete the picture, you can demonstrate an abundant stewardship as an act of compassionate caring for others. Like Yeshua, you need to make an accounting and compare your ample means with the needs of others. I don’t want to coerce you, so I simply make this request — do what is fair and faithful.
