The care that our friends have for us in Christ

2 Corinthians Bible Background

09.16.2019 – New Testament: 2Co 8.16

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Corinthians 8 on September 16, In the year of our Lord 2019

By Don Ruhl

Paul and Timothy cared greatly for the church at Corinth, but they were not the only ones, for Paul wrote to the church, saying,

But thanks be to God who puts the same earnest care for you into the heart of Titus.

– 2 Corinthians 8.16

Undoubtedly, there were many more who likewise cared for the Corinthian brethren and that love spread throughout the Roman Empire, causing the church to explode in growth when people saw the care that Christians had for one another.


  • Is your care for your brethren such that others want to be part of the church?
  • If not, what do you need to do to change?
