Day 8: Sacrifice
It's day 8 of the 13 days of love celebration! (To read days 1-7, simply click the tag to your right.) This has been such an insightful series, and I hope your relationships are benefitting from each post. Nevertheless, I would be remiss not to mention that love is sacrificial. Many of us are familiar with the greatest display of love: the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the reconciliation of all humanity to God. It was a sacrifice that Jesus made for all knowing that many would not accept Him. Throughout centuries, various levels of sacrifices have been made. Of course, all sacrifice does not involve the loss of life. However, all sacrifice involves a great price. Today, I would like to honor a few people who lived sacrificially due to their love for all humanity. To learn the names of each person, click on the photos. My hope is that you will take time to learn about their lives and the impact of their legacy.
I greatly appreciate the service of the aforementioned men and women. Certainly, my life has been blessed because of their efforts.
