Making the Right Sacrifices
Throughout the Bible, sacrifice is a central theme. Sometimes these sacrifices do not meet God’s standards, as in the story of Cain. Other times, these sacrifices are called good and show the faith of the one sacrificing as in the story of Abraham. God has sacrificed His Son, which shows His faithfulness to us. It is our duty to make faithful sacrifices to God. Prayers, good works, and our speech are all referred to as sacrifices we should make in the New Testament.
