Sacrifice brings forth growth. Sacrificing for others bring us meaning. Sacrificing for ourselves brings forth hope. Sacrifice comes in many forms but it always means that we do something that we would rather not do in order to accomplish a better future for others or ourselves. When you give up something of value, like your time, for something even more important, like the well being of others, you have found a way to sacrifice and serve at the same time. When your heart is in the sacrifice, your mind will follow. The reverse is not always true. Put your heart in first and everything will turn out better. As you learn to embrace the art of sacrifice, notice the sacrifice of others. They need to the appreciation as much as you need to accept the service.
