Discussion for 2 Corinthians 8

  • Brianna vs. 4-11
    While many religions focus on an external ministry, Paul reminded us of the need of an internal ministry. This can be a caring of those taking the lead among us, but also our fellow brothers and sisters. ( Vs. 6) We are not asked to give beyond our means, but to whatever we can reasonably give. So, continue the generous spirit, but never be pressured to give beyond what you can.
  • Ivy Johnson
    Appeal made for the poor and needy Saints in Jerusalem: Paul encourages people at Corinth give liberally. Corinthians Christians abounded in many things: other graces: had example of Christ’s giving, encouraging give unselfishly: Macedonian churches been generous:Titus to Corinth: collection. Paul recommends him and his companions: God will bless them for giving: and it will give glory to God!

    Vicki, another meaning would be: we do you to wit (to know) of the grace of God. Amen
  • A disciple
    Wit means know or knowledge; like in the saying, At my wits end. A more clear translation would read: "But, brethren, we make known to you the grace of God..." (Wycliffe Bible)
