The Lord does not expect more from you than you can give

2 Corinthians Bible Background

09.16.2016 – New Testament: 2Co 8.12

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Corinthians 8 on September 16, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

Yes, the Lord wants you to contribute every first day of the week into the church’s treasury, but He also wants you to do it willingly, and He does not expect you to give more than you have,

For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have (2 Corinthians 8.12). 

The Lord has no desire for robots who have no thoughts of their own, for if He did, He would have created them!


  • Do you give willingly?
