“A Plea to Finish Well” 2 Corinthians 8:10-11
Saying the right things is one thing. Following through with action and commitment is what really matters. The Corinthians agreed to participate in the collecting of this “relief offering” when Paul presented it to them. In fact, they were the first congregation to give. A year later, enthusiasm gave way to apathy and the offering was all but forgotten.

Paul’s advice was simple and straightforward: Finish what you began. Paul reminded one of the largest and most prosperous churches it was not enough to talk about giving. They needed to see this project through to its completion.
