What sacrifices do we make to our God, and what good do we think they do? Some sacrifice our families, or time, our well-being. We do things we don't want to, we compromise, we keep driving when our tank is way past empty, we keep giving when our pockets are dwindling low, and it is because somewhere at the root of our conciousness is the idea that that is what we must do, that God is pleased with burnt offerings. Sometimes, we feel so BURNT. Too many meetings, too many bible studies, too many people, but its doing the right thing, is it not, to continue. Do we slaughter our families on this altar, when we press forward with the altruistic notions of "ministry first". do we offer ourselves up, chunk by bloody chunk, and is that what makes our God happy? it seems grotesque sometimes, but at other times, its beauty. i'm not sure mostly.
