2 Corinthians 8:13-15 (New King James Version)
For I do not mean that others should be eased and you burdened; but by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may supply their lack, that their abundance also may supply your lack—that there may be equality. As it is written, “He who gathered much had nothing left over, and he who gathered little had no lack.”
This passage is speaking to us about giving; however, it occurs to me that this can also apply to lifting up another when he or she is feeling down or going through a rough time. We have a responsibility to keep our spiritual buckets full so that we can make sure and have something to give when God calls us to it.
It surely is important to remain financially stable so one can give monetarily when the need arises. We need to make sure we stay "spiritually stable" and available as well for the same reason.
