Titus is eager (2 Cor. 8:16)

“But thanks be to God,

Who puts

In the heart of Titus

The same eagerness

For you.”

Χάρις δὲ τῷ Θεῷ τῷ διδόντι τὴν αὐτὴν σπουδὴν ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ Τίτου,

Paul said thanks be to God (Χάρις δὲ τῷ Θεῷ), who put (τῷ διδόντι) into the heart of Titus (ἐν τῇ καρδίᾳ Τίτου) the same eagerness for you (τὴν αὐτὴν σπουδὴν ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν).  Paul now turned to the question of Titus.  Paul was very thankful to God that he put into Titus’ heart the same eagerness for the Corinthians that Paul had.  Titus had helped solve their problems earlier in verse 8:6.  Titus had made a good impression on the Corinthians.  He loved them the same way that Paul did.  Do you know someone who thinks and acts like yourself?
