The Sacrifice of Isaac

In today’s world, sacrifice is often misunderstood. Jesus sacrificed His life for ours. Most Medal of Honor recipients have given thier lives, or risked it, for their brothers and for complete strangers. I’ve heard countless stories of everyday people jumping in front of a car to save a stranger, or in front of a bullet to save the store clerk. I don’t think anyone would argue that these men and women know what sacrifice is.

But sacrifice doesn’t have to be your life. What is sacrifice for you?

Until the Whole World Knows,

Paul

    I agree “sacrifice” doesn’t have to be jumping in front of a bullet. But I also think most don’t really know what “sacrifice” is, or really “sacrifice.” Sacrifice has a cost to it, not simply an inconvenience. Purposely inconveniencing ourselves is not a sacrifice … huge difference!
