What happens when we give to the saints

2 Corinthians Bible Background

09.17.2017 – New Testament: 2Co 9.12

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Corinthians 9 on September 17, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

When we learn of poor brethren suffering in other locations, it not only helps them, but something else happens,

For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God… (2 Corinthians 9.12). 

People thank God for the generosity of Christians. True, some people just take advantage of it, but others see the good happening and praise God for it.

Questions:

  • What do you think and do when you see the church helping others?
  • Should our financial help only be limited to those in our home nation?
