Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 16:3

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 16:3


16:1 The saints - A more solemn and a more affecting word, than if he had said, the poor.

16:2 Let every one - Not the rich only: let him also that hath little, gladly give of that little. According as he hath been prospered - Increasing his alms as God increases his substance. According to this lowest rule of Christian prudence, if a man when he has or gains one pound give a tenth to God, when he has or gains an hundred he will give the tenth of this also. And yet I show unto you a more excellent way. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear. Stint yourself to no proportion at all. But lend to God all you can.

16:4 They shall go with me - To remove any possible suspicion.

16:5 I pass through Macedonia - I purpose going that way.
