2 Corinthians 8:1-4

Encouragement to Give Generously

1We want you to know, brothers,
Or  brothers and sisters
about the grace of God that has been b  given among the churches of Macedonia,
2for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and c  their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. 3For they gave d  according to their means, as I can testify, and beyond their means, of their own accord, 4begging us earnestly e  for the favor
The Greek word charis can mean  favor or grace or thanks, depending on the context
of taking part in g  the relief of the saints
