“But thanks be to God, who put into the heart of Titus the same earnest care I have for you.” -2 Corinthians 8:16
Thanks be to God, who put that gung-ho spirit into the heart of Titus. It’s not “Thanks to Titus,” but “Thanks to God for Titus.”
If there’s any good in you at all, it’s all because God put it there. Every good work is placed in the heart by the Spirit, which is humbling, but also God-glorifying.
God prompted their will to work in the right way.
All the glory belongs to Jesus!
