13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.
2 Corinthians 8:13-15 KJV
To love your neighbor as yourself is work,
But work that stems from love is worth the sweat,
And if you have abundance do not shirk
To give to those whose needs have not been met.
If your own children had no food to eat,
You’d ask your wealthy neighbor for some aid.
Then when you’ve gained your riches so complete,
Please help a hungry family who’s dismayed.
The scales of love are balanced when you give,
For we are all but equal in God’s eyes,
And even if your neighbor is a sieve,
Still love him as yourself – don’t compromise.
A man that gathers much has no surplus;
And he that gathers scant lacks nothing thus.
