Sacrifice

DSC_8868

I saw God today, in sacrifice.

A father giving up his son.

The son giving up his rights.

Done,

out of love for

us.

“Who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.  And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death- even death on the cross.  Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name…” Philippians 2:6-9

And He sees the little sacrifices you make each day,

loving your child,

taking care of your wife,

helping a student,

caring for that patient,

loving and serving your neighbor.

They do not go unnoticed.

God sees and takes note.

Do not give up.  Keep going.  Keep giving up the small, for the beautiful big that is coming.

“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

Is there a little sacrifice God might be asking of you this week?
