Bible Reading Day 260
Day 260: September 17 (2 Corinthians 8)
Good morning !
As Paul nears the end of his letter, he reminds the Corinthians about their heart for giving. They had been the first to offer to give for the saints in Jerusalem, but it seems they were slow following through. To help them make the choice to give, Paul reminds them of what others have done, as well as what God has done in Jesus. Giving is our heritage as believers, and Paul reminds them to give according to their ability; this is not about amounts of money given, but about every one being willing to share what they have.
Titus is being sent by Paul to encourage the Corinthians in their giving. Who helps you follow God’s instructions? And how can you be like Titus to others?
Have a great day!
