Recently, The Cincinnati Enquirer told the story of a man who donated 80 gallons of blood. He is the record holder for the local blood bank. According to the report, if 60 people gave every drop of blood in their bodies, it would not equal what he has given. His name is Paul Michaels, age 78.

Paul began giving blood when his brother was wounded in the Korean War. He drives to give his blood products every two weeks. If it is determined that he can't give because of low iron, he will go home, eat steak and spinach and come back. He has no plans to stop.

It would be notable if we could show that kind of commitment to the cause of Christ. He set the example. He gave His lifeblood for us.
