    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:16

    ¶ Pero gracias a Dios que dio la misma solicitud por vosotros en el corazn de Tito.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 8:16

    Verse 16. But thanks be to
    God] He thanks God who had already disposed the heart of Titus to attend to this business; and, with his usual address, considers all this as done in the behalf of the Corinthian Church; and that though the poor Christians in Judea are to have the immediate benefit, yet God put honour upon them in making them his instruments in supplying the wants of others. He who is an almoner to God Almighty is highly honoured indeed.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 16. But thanks be to
    God , etc..] The apostle proceeds to give an account of the persons and their characters, who were employed in making this collection at Corinth for the poor saints, and begins with Titus; and the rather because he had been already concerned in setting afoot that good work among them; and gives thanks to God, which , says he, put the same earnest care into the heart of Titus for you , by earnest care is meant that very great carefulness, solicitude, and diligence, Titus had shown in stirring them up to a liberal contribution; and which was the same that he had expressed in the arguments just now used by him, to engage them in the same service; and this care, as it was a very earnest and hearty one, so he suggests that it was more for them, than for the sake of the poor; the performance of acts of beneficence and liberality tending more to the advantage and account of the giver than of the receiver: and he further intimates, that these good motions in the heart of Titus were not merely natural, or the effects of human power and free will, but were of God, as every good thing is; they were wrought in him by the Spirit of God, and sprung from the grace of God, and therefore the apostle returns thanks to God for the same; and the mention of this could not fail of carrying weight with it, and of having some influence on the minds of the Corinthians.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 16-24 - The
    apostle commends the brethren sent to collect their charity, tha it might be known who they were, and how safely they might be trusted It is the duty of all Christians to act prudently; to hinder, as far a we can, all unjust suspicions. It is needful, in the first place, to act uprightly in the sight of God, but things honest in the sight of men should also be attended to. A clear character, as well as a pur conscience, is requisite for usefulness. They brought glory to Chris as instruments, and had obtained honour from Christ to be counte faithful, and employed in his service. The good opinion others have of us, should be an argument with us to do well __________________________________________________________________

    8:16 {Which putteth} (twi didonti). Present
    active articular participle, "who is continually giving." Hence Titus is full of zealous care for you.
