Thought of the day – the 18th of november. A costly sacrifice

Made me stop and think! Beautifully stated and so glad I stopped by to see this blog….well worth the look. Blessings 🙂

Some things are only for the heart. My heart.

Some other things, are for everyone to see. I am a permanent “spectacle”, both to angels and men.

But my offerings… my sacrifice… it should be something that should be definitely costing me. Something.

David saw it as mandatory – 2Sam.24.24. He was not willing to accept something cheap, something inexpensive…

What’s expensive to me today? What does it mean to leave all…?

To give…

Grace is for free. But doesn’t such free, exuberant gift – the sacrifice of God’s Son on the cross – prompt me to be no less exuberant myself?

Walking with Him, following in His steps, day by day – loving the lovable, enjoying the beautiful, savouring the pleasure… is this sacrifice? It’s rather ego-centrical serving, as long as all is so good, so plentyful, as long as I don’t lack health, money, children, all my wishes…
