They gave up something to rise higher. Abraham gave up his home to seek a better country. Moses gave up the riches of Egypt. Daniel gave up security. You’ll never find anybody who achieves great success in life without a give-up story. Nothing comes free (John C. Maxwell).
John the Baptist gave up being first so he could be second. Paul gave up his past and made a radical turnaround. Jesus himself gave up His rights. And you will find that you, too, will have to give up something good if you want something better. (John C. Maxwell).
