Second Reading for the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B

2 Corinthians 8:7, 9, 13-15

Summary: Strive to excel in generosity, following Christ's example. Share your abundance to create equality, ensuring everyone’s needs are met.

Excel in Generosity

Brothers and sisters: As you excel in every respect, in faith, discourse, knowledge, all earnestness, and in the love we have for you, may you excel in this gracious act also.

For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, for your sake he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.

Not that others should have relief while you are burdened, but that as a matter of equality your abundance at the present time should supply their needs, so that their abundance may also supply your needs, that there may be equality.

As it is written: Whoever had much did not have more, and whoever had little did not have less.
