Paul's Concern For The Christians At Corinth

14 Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not your substance, but your selves. For children are not expected to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children. 15 And I will with the greatest pleasure spend and be spent for your souls; even though the more I love you, the less I should be loved. 16 Be it so, that I did not burden you myself, yet, may some say, being crafty I over-reached you by subtilty.
