“An act of giving up something valued for the sake of something more important or worthy”

The term is also used metaphorically to describe selfless good deeds for others or a short-term loss in return for a greater gain. The verb meaning is “to make sacred”.

To be a good parent or partner means self-sacrifice for the greater good and wellbeing of those we love.

If you say you love, and truly do, there will be sacrifice on your part at some point in any relationship. To be able to, at any moment, sacrifice what we want so another can be something more -wonderful or whole – requires love and faith.

Your sacrifice need not be the ultimate sacrifice of life, though our military men and women often sacrifice their lives for freedom. It can be such things as giving up your pick of a movie, going to PTA rather than doing something else you’d planned, giving time to care for the elderly or needy, being flexible and willing to give up your needs for the needs of others.

Jesus gave the ultimate gift to us by sacrificing himself for the good of all mankind. His love stands beyond reproach.

Thank you Jesus for your Divine love of humanity, and the sacrifice of your life to give us the opportunity to be forgiven and remembered by God through all eternity.
I love you! ☺

“This was a vision Gigi had in a dream…all men into the face of Jesus. Cover one half and then the opposite. It is a striking of “fair to dark skinned” and captures your heart when viewed in person.
