Sacrifice. A sacrifice is not merely giving someone something that you think they need. Or giving up something you have. A sacrifice is giving what you hold onto, a sacrifice comes with a cost to the giver. There’s an old saying, ‘if you love something set it free.’ This is true in that if there is something you love and couldn’t bear to part with and you feel God calling you to give it to help another, do it. Set it free. By choosing to hold onto whatever it is God is telling you to let go of, you are placing that above God. Placing whatever it is between you and God. That becomes an idol. Set it free. Let it go. By following God’s will to set free what you have, you are acknowledging that all you have belongs to God, all you have been given has come from Him. To set it free is to give Him glory. Give God glory and share His blessings. #Advent2018 #Christmas2018 #Christmas #Jesus #Bible #shereadstruth
