2 Corinthians 8:1-15 -------New Revised Standard
Version (NRSV)
Encouragement to Be Generous
8 We want you to know, brothers and sisters, about the grace of
God that has been granted to the churches of Macedonia; 2 for
during a severe ordeal of affliction, their abundant joy and their
extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on
their part. 3 For, as I can testify, they voluntarily gave according
to their means, and even beyond their means, 4 begging us
earnestly for the privilege of sharing in this ministry to the
saints— 5 and this, not merely as we expected; they gave
themselves first to the Lord and, by the will of God, to us, 6 so
that we might urge Titus that, as he had already made a
beginning, so he should also complete this generous
undertaking among you. 7 Now as you excel in everything—in
faith, in speech, in knowledge, in utmost eagerness, and in our
love for you—so we want you to excel also in this generous
undertaking.
8I
do not say this as a command, but I am testing the
genuineness of your love against the earnestness of others.
9 For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that
though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that
by his poverty you might become rich. 10 And in this matter I am
giving my advice: it is appropriate for you who began last year
not only to do something but even to desire to do something—
11 now finish doing it, so that your eagerness may be matched
by completing it according to your means. 12 For if the eagerness
is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has—not
according to what one does not have. 13 I do not mean that there
should be relief for others and pressure on you, but it is a
question of a fair balance between 14 your present abundance
and their need, so that their abundance may be for your need, in
order that there may be a fair balance. 15 As it is written, “The
one who had much did not have too much, and the one who had
little did not have too little.”
