Paul, who wrote this, had laboured in the church in Ephesus for three years. When he said goodbye to them the final time (Acts 20:25-35), he reminded the elders that during that entire time he had lived among them as a giver. That's why he says that even though he would have been entitled to be financially supported by the church, he refused it. He not only provided for his own needs, but also for the needs of the others who were with him. He had a "maximum" attitude toward being a "giver"! That was why God could use him to the maximum extent in building the Church.
