"When Jesus says, "A man should lay down his life," I believe that what he is trying to get us to see is that this is where joy and love are found. Not just for the receiver but for the giver as well. He is reminding us to release our gifts and graces and let them flow out of us and into others, knowing that as we do, joy and love will come flowing back to us."
("See you at the house.", Bob Benson, pg. 86)
