22In addition, we are sending with them our brother who has often proved to us in many ways that he is zealous, and now even more so because of his great confidence in you. 23As for Titus, he is my partner and fellow worker among you; as for our brothers, they are representatives of the churches and an honor to Christ. 24Therefore show these men the proof of your love and the reason for our pride in you, so that the churches can see it.
Jesus, Paul is challenging the Corinthians to prove their love for You by how they treat his friends. I hear a challenge from You in this. I hear a call from You to treat others so well, and live such a holy life, that other Christians will be proud of my actions. Lord, please help me to love others so deeply that they wonder wear that love comes from. *2Corinthians8*
