2 Corinthians 2:1-4

So I made up my mind that I would not make another painful visit to you. For if I grieve you, who is left to make me glad but you whom I have grieved? I wrote as I did, so that when I came I would not be distressed by those who should have made me rejoice. I had confidence in all of you, that you would all share my joy. For I wrote you out of great distress and anguish of heart and with many tears, not to grieve you but to let you know the depth of my love for you.

One response to “2 Corinthians 2:1-4

  1. There is real human emotion and relationships wrapped in these epistles. These were young converts that Paul dearly loved and felt responsible for. This is Christ’s battle and His mission. But I need to be deeply invested. I need to love people like Paul loves them and be invested in the lives and growth of others.
