Read Hebrews 11:8-10
Abraham: Sometimes faith in God requires sacrifice. It’s not always pleasant, but it is always worth it to have faith in God and be obedient to him.
Over the years, I have realized I am a little bit selfish. If I have to wait in a long line, I think it’s the end of the world. If something doesn’t go the way I want it to, then I am very upset. I don’t like to put myself out, and I don’t really like to sacrifice anything.
To God, though, sacrifice is the ultimate expression of faith. Just like Abraham sacrificed much because of his faith in God, we are also to make sacrifices for others in our life to do what God has asked us to do. It’s not always pleasant, but it is always worth it to have faith in God and be obedient to Him.
