For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has—not according to what one does not have.
2 Corinthians 8:12
Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by ceasing to pray for you.

Psalm 91: 1-2
If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:3
God reveals deep and hidden things; he knows that is in the darkness, and light dwells with him.
