The Ultimate Sacrifice
July 8, 2018
She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. Proverbs 31:20. Many people are under the assumption that something must be done in order to gain entrance into Heaven. It is often believed that giving or donating to charity will certainly pave the way to eternal life. Nothing could be further from the truth. God doesn’t want material possessions. Sometimes it can be all too easy to relinquish worldly goods. It’s much harder to volunteer time and effort. There’s always someone who craves a warm touch. What we don’t ever realize we need is love and attention, support and encouragement, compassion and understanding. A comforting shoulder to cry on. A focused ear to listen. A kind word spoken in soothing tones. Indeed, the ultimate sacrifice that can be offered is yourself.
