2 Corinthians 8:5

And they did not do as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God’s will. — 2 Corinthians 8:5

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Paul was surprised at the Macedonians’ generosity to the Lord’s work for two reasons. First, they were very impoverished and didn’t have much to share. Second, rather than viewing what they had as their own, they gave themselves to God and then to his servants who were asking for their help in ministering to others. Their example is a great reminder to us of how we need to approach our giving to help others in need.
