We are most like Jesus when we have the desire to give.
Several times in this passage Paul refers to the attitude of the Corinthians. They were not only the first to give, they were the first to desire to give. Paul goes further and talks about their eager willingness to help their struggling brothers and sisters. Where does this desire come from? According to Paul, our model for giving is the example of Jesus. He became poor so that we might become rich. Just as Jesus willingly gave his life, we should be willing to give to others.
