Paul is not shamed b/c it is the power of God and because in it the righteousness of God is revealed.

I believe that the central purpose of this section is that Paul encourage the Corinthians to excel in the area of giving (7c). the description of the macedonians is there to motivate them toward the 7c encouragement. the instructions to titus are aimed in this same direction. All of this is grounded in the fact that Jesus has done it--that's verse 9. I have made verse 9 a bilateral statement because it serves as the grounds for verse 10 as well, which i did not include in this arc.

2 Corinthians
2 Corinthians 8:1-9
NT
esv
We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God
that has been given among the churches of Macedonia,
locative
for in a severe test of affliction,
their abundance of joy
and their extreme poverty
have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part.
For they gave according to their means, as I can testify,
and beyond their means,
of their own accord,
begging us earnestly for the favor of taking part in the relief of the saints--
and this, not as we expected,
but they gave themselves first to the Lord
and then by the will of God to us.
progression
series
Accordingly, we urged Titus that as he had started,
so he should complete among you this act of grace.
But as you excel in everything--
in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you--
see that you excel in this act of grace also.
I say this not as a command,
but to prove by the earnestness of others that your love also is genuine.
negativepositive
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,
that though he was rich,
yet for your sake he became poor,
so that you by his poverty might become rich.
