2 Corinthians 8:1 - 8:5

Generosity and Grace

Now brothers, we make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the churches of Macedonia,
2 that in a great testing by affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the richness of their generosity. 3 For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, 4 begging us with much urging for the grace of sharing in the ministry to the saints, 5 and this, not as we had expected, but they first gave themselves to the Lord and to us by the will of God.
