I gave them many examples of people I knew personally that are "givers" and how they are the happiest people I know. I've had many influential people in my life teach me about giving. I don't even think they were necessarily meaning to teach me, but I just learned by their example. I want to share some of the things I've learned from watching some wonderful givers over the past couple of years.
He went hungry, so that we might be filled.
He grew weary, so that we might have rest.
He gave up Heaven, so that we might enjoy Heaven.
He gave up all comfort, so that we might be comforted.
He was thirsty, so that we might have the living water.
He wept, so that we might rejoice.
He was wounded, so that we might be healed.
He died, so that we might live.
