Love…A Practical Sacrifice

The love for God in the first commandment is made ‘practical’ in the love for our neighbors in the second commandment.
True love is all about ‘sacrifice’ for the sake of the ones you love.

Ah, the feeling of being back in the saddle, of books, studies, and homework. Last night, I was reading for the class Discipleship in the Local Church and these two statements attracted my attention. I think the two key words are practical and sacrifice. Put the two together and you have ‘practical sacrifice’. I like that idea. Love can expressed in a grand fashion and with deep emotion; however, in daily life, it is most often expressed in the idea of ‘practical sacrifice’. A giving up in a practical sense; I lay down my ideas in favor for someone else’s ideas. A visible expression of charity.

Blessings,

EJ
