The Reward of Personal Sacrifice
Personal sacrifice can be rewarding
Sometimes in money,
More often not.
The true reward comes in making someone else
Happy. We adapt,
We can move on
With small sacrifice. Personal sacrifice
Is not the end. It
Can be the start
Of something new. Relationships form and grow.
God looks down with joy.
No matter what
The cost, personal sacrifice can be worth
It. More than money,
It grants joy, and
The smile that you can create is worth the price.
We can learn a lot
From Christ. If he
Was willing to give his life, can we not give
A little money
And time? The best
Personal sacrifice was demonstrated
On that wondrous cross.
