V. 1-5 These believers were very generous in their giving.
V. 2 Their zeal had encouraged very many to be generous also.
V. 6 We are sowing now by the faithful use of that which the Lord has given to us. And the reaping time will come when the Lord will review our life and wil commend and reward that which was done or given for Him.
V. 7 "God loveth a cheerful given". How nice to receive a gift from someone who gave cheerfully because (s)he loved you!
V. 11-12 This generous kindness caused "thanksgiving to God" which is mentioned in the end of each verse. There were really three benefits; first the Corinthians who gave so generously would receive a reward; second, those who received the gift would be encouraged by it; third, the Lord received the thanks!
V. 15 A reminder of the most wonderful and most generous gift of all. God has given His own Son. Truly an "unspeakable gift".
