Read II Cor 8.
Paul continues with his request for missions funds. He begins by giving praise to a poor church that raised a significant amount for the missions. They gave above and beyond their means.
I have been in both rich and poor churches. I have seen leadership worry about paying bills and other leaders worry about reaching the neighbors. Something profound happens when a church is focused outside of itself. God gets involved in the math and things simply take care of themselves.
