1 Samuel 30:24
Who can agree to your proposal? The share of the one who goes into battle is to be the same as the share of the one who remains with the supplies. They will share equally.”
When they measured it by quarts, the person who gathered a lot had no surplus, and the person who gathered a little had no shortage. Each gathered as much as he needed to eat.
They will eat equal portions besides what he has received from the sale of the family estate.
‘These last men put in one hour, and you made them equal to us who bore the burden of the day and the burning heat!’
Take what’s yours and go. I want to give this last man the same as I gave you.
The wealthy may not give more and the poor may not give less than half a shekel when giving the contribution to the Lord to atone for your lives.
Give, and it will be given to you; a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over—will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.”
2 Corinthians 8:13-14
It is not that there may be relief for others and hardship for you, but it is a question of equality— at the present time your surplus is available for their need, so their abundance may also become available for our need, so there may be equality.
