"giving up of something valued: a giving up of something valuable or important for somebody or something else considered to be of more value or importance."
What is important to you? Is it your social status or your job? Is it your family living in a home you own or the summer vacation you have planned? Is it material possessions like your car or your jewelry. Is it your retirement and your nest egg to live "the good life" during retirement?
Would you give it up for a child you don't know? Maybe not all of it; but, would you make a significant lifestyle change to be the hands and feet of Christ to a child? To give a child security and safety and a family in which they can feel loved. I dont think there are many people REALLY willing to sacrifice for anything or anyone if it means giving up some of their security and easy way of life.
don’t hesitate to step in and help.
If you say, “Hey, that’s none of my business,”
will that get you off the hook?
Someone is watching you closely, you know—
Someone not impressed with weak excuses.
SO?? What is your someting valuable or important that YOU can give up for someone else of MORE value or importance.
Christ died on the cross for you...YOU... He valued you enough to give His LIFE
Why is it so hard to give up a little money, a little time, (a little jewelry), or a little love when Christ gave his life for you.
Seek the Lord in prayer and ask Him where you fit into the orphan care and adoption movement happening in His church today. I promise the sacrifice you are asked to give will be nothing compared to the blessing received for your obedience to the Lord.
