6So we have urged Titus, who encouraged your giving in the first place, to return to you and encourage you to finish this ministry of giving. 7Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from usc—I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving.

Father, what do I excel at?  Is there anything at all?  I once did have a zeal for giving.  I once gave more than I could afford.  Where did that zeal go?  And can I excel in faith, and speaking, and love and enthusiasm.  I am so weak and so tempted so much.  Please be strong in my weakness somehow.  Help me Lord to excel in love and charity more than anything else.  Change me Lord.  *2Corinthians8*
