“The one who had much did not have too much,and the one who had little did not have too little.” (II Corinthians 8:15)
Paul is paraphrasing from Exodus 16:18, a passage that describes how God provided the Israelites with quail and manna in the desert. Within the context of Paul’s letter to the Corinthians advocating for a collection of relief for Jerusalem it sounds quite utopian. Today we can look around and see those with much who seem never to have enough, and those with little to have almost nothing at all. The selection from Paul’s letter should challenge us to be concerned about the distribution of wealth in our society and work toward this utopian ideal of adequate distribution of resources.
