A player diving on the floor after a loose ball, scraping he’s skin.
A gymnast sticking the last vault even after breaking her ankle.
A guy giving up his coat to a girl even tho he is freezing.
What do they all have in common? Well the title says it all. Those three examples all gave up something or themselves for a greater reward. They believed that their sacrifice would not be in vain. The Lord also ask us the sacrifice things for the greater good of his kingdom. The Lord may be asking you to give up your time, your money, your energy to help His kingdom grow. We all have the duty of letting the world know about our living God, and we can’t be slacking on our jobs. If it’s through music, dancing, talking with friends, etc. let God use you. The baller may lose, the gymnast may get 2nd, the guy may not get the girl, but our God will pour out His blessings on those who listen and do His will. Did He call you to make a sacrifice?
