“Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry be not blamed:”
King James Version (KJV)
6:3 Giving, as far as in us lies, no offence, that the ministry be not blamed on our account.
2Co 6:3 Giving no offence in any thing. The participle "giving" refers to "we" (2Co 6:1). Paul describes the manner of life of himself and fellow ministers. They were careful that the ministry be not blamed. It matters not what be the talents of a minister, if there be no confidence in his purity of life, his influence will be neutralized. Every one should be anxious that his life hinder not the gospel.
