I learned early on in my Christian walk that Jesus calls each of us to a life of sacrifice. This means that we do not live for ourselves. Rather, we live for the sake of God and other people. As a woman, I feel like this is something that I can handle. However, at times, I get tired of living sacrificially. I am a high school teacher, I have a teenage son, I’m a pastor’s wife. I think you get the picture. Sacrifice is a daily reality for me. This is not the sacrifice that I’m talking about. I’m not just talking about giving up things for the sake of others. I’m talking about sacrifice that leads to great blessings from God.
Journey with me as I reflect on what it means to live sacrificially. I hope you’ll also check out my first book: Be Encouraged – Living a Life of Sacrifice.
