A Living Sacrifice

Sisters in Faith

You have a whole lot to give your children, my sister. What you give them today will grow within them throughout their life. If you teach them to care, share, and dare while they are young, they will reap the results of the right thinking you instill in them as they grows. The most powerful inspiration you can give your children is to continually show them the sacrificial love you pour out daily to enable them to go after their dreams. This type of giving is called a living sacrifice. It may be that you sacrificed some of the money needed for the months’ expenses so your son or daughter could participate in a camp to further develop skills as an individual. You may have sacrificed dollars set aside for your hair and nails, so they could get new school clothes. In one way, these choices are setbacks; but they are also set ups. You may bear the struggle alone; but you will share the victories and successes with that young child you adore. You give so they can receive. Difficult? Yes! Rewarding? Most definitely! (2, p.40)
