Generosity in Giving

1 Now we make known to you, brothers, the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, 2 that with a great ordeal of affliction, the abundance of their joy and the extreme depth of their poverty have overflowed to the wealth of their generosity. 3 I testify that [they gave]a according to [their] ability, and beyond [their] ability, by their own choice, 4 requesting of us with much exhortation the favor and the fellowship of the ministry to the saints, 5 and not just as we had hoped, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and [then] to us, by the will of God. 6 So we urged Titus that, just as he had previously begun [it], thus he would also complete for you this [act of] grace.
