Spirit of Sacrifice

A rich man waited at the river front for an ocean liner to depart. An acquaintance who joined him said, “You seem pleased about something.”

“Yes,” said the rich man, “I’m quite proud today You see that vessel at anchor? I donated $10,000 worth of hospital equipment that’s heading for a hospital in China. I came to see the vessel off. “That’s very generous,” replied the friend. “You know, I also have a gift on that ship. Aboard is my only daughter, who’s dedicating her life as a missionary to China.”

Stunned, the wealthy man turned to his friend and exclaimed, “My dear brother, when I think of what this sacrifice means to you, I feel as though I’ve given nothing!”
