Paul sees no reason why they cannot give on exactly the same basis. that the Macedonian do.
They had failed in their giving when Timothy went to Corinth. The Corinthians were too
tough for him. Timothy had too much "sweetness and light", and he flopped. They drove
him right out of town. So Paul sent his trouble shooter -- Titus.
"The meek will He guide in judgment: and the meek will He teach His way."
Dear Heavenly Father, when I have failed through my own lack of wisdom,
help me to rely on Your unfaltering love and power.
In Christ name I pray
