The reason that many people don't want to be givers is that it involves sacrifice - a "cup of suffering" - as Jesus explained later on in Matthew 20:22-23. But, the Church can only be built through sacrifice. So, as we see needs in the church around us, let us come to God as thirsty people, and ask God to fill us with His power deep in our innermost being. From that innermost place will flow rivers of living water (John 7:37-38) that will water the parched ground around us and build the Church.
