Support For Paul's Ministry

10 It was a matter of great joy to me, as one in union with the Lord, that at length your interest in me had revived. The interest indeed you had, but not the opportunity. 11 Do not think that I am saying this under the pressure of want. For I, however I am placed, have learned to be independent of circumstances. 12 I know how to face humble circumstances, and I know how to face prosperity. Into all and every human experience I have been initiated--into plenty and hunger, into prosperity and want.
