“I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.”
King James Version (KJV)
2Co 8:8 I speak not by commandment. He levies no tax by command. The giving must be free and cheerful in order to be blessed. He encourages them by occasion of the forwardness of others, the example of the Macedonian brethren, and by that of Christ.
