2 Corinthians 8-10: Gifts and Giving

New Testament: Student Study guide, (2003), 129


As Paul continued to counsel the Saints in Corinth, he wrote of the special gift Jesus Christ gave to each of us (see 2 Corinthians 8:9). He also explained that as we strive to follow the Savior’s example and give of ourselves, we should do it cheerfully (see 2 Corinthians 9:7). Paul’s teachings help us understand that we ought to give glory to the Lord for the gifts that we receive and recognize that all things come from Him (see 2 Corinthians 10:16–18).
