Sacrifice

As I think on the word, “Sacrifice”, immolation comes to mind.  We are never asked to sacrifice anything that is Good for our Spiritual growth, but we are expected to sacrifice self-pity, which leads immediately to self-condemnation, self-justification and self-righteousness.  One can never experience joy while “wallowing” in any of those.  Freedom from mental bondage comes from the release of those and focusing on God.  Once I heard an expression which I love, “God is, error isn’t and that’s that!”  alford_larry_10
