We all know that God sacrificed Jesus on the cross for our sins, so we in return, we have to make sacrifices too. There are to many sacrifices in our lives, to sometimes move forward. Sacrifices can be a good thing, if we're giving up something that 's bad for us for a good reason. Sacrificing something for God's sake is always good a reason.
It's like sacrificing for our children, I'm sure we have all made sacrifices for our children sake, ; just like God sacrificed Jesus for our sakes. We all have to make sacrifices that's sometimes a hard choice, but if we're making the sacrifice for our Lord and Saviour, everything else will work out for the better, for us.
