Sacrifice

It took me a long time before I appreciated the word. Think about the word “sacrifice” and what it might mean to you.

The way I see it there are two meanings. The first is what are you willing to give. In other words, what are you willing to give up for someone else for nothing more than their betterment or for many others for something greater than yourself. The second meaning is how many are you willing to destroy because you say you’re looking for¬†something greater. In the second case one might claim to be searching for a greater good but are truthfully only looking for self betterment.

So in this HOLLIDAY season, ask yourself how do you define sacrifice. We may need to know all of our answers sooner than later.
