2 Corinthians 6:3-10

6:3 We give no occasion of stumbling in anything, that our service may not be blamed, 6:4 but in everything commending ourselves, as servants of God, in great endurance, in afflictions, in hardships, in distresses, 6:5 in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, in labors, in watchings, in fastings; 6:6 in pureness, in knowledge, in patience, in kindness, in the Holy Spirit, in sincere love, 6:7 in the word of truth, in the power of God; by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, 6:8 by glory and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; 6:9 as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as punished, and not killed; 6:10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.



  1. Not sure if you put these out here because you are unsure of their meaning or for some other reason but I capsulize this by saying that Paul was simply commending his ministry as one of integrity, one lived with full disclosure to all.

    Hi Bill, thanks for commenting. I’m just posting the bits I like without thinking about it too deeply. Originally (e.g., last October) I would write some notes about why I liked the passage, but I suppose I’ve gotten lazy. I’ll start writing again.
