Give it up


"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13.

One of the hard sayings of Jesus Christ. This follows His command to love one another. You really can't show a greater love than dying for someone. So, can we do it? It is like the young man who told his girlfriend - "I'll swim the ocean for you. I'll climb the highest mountain for you. I'll cut off my arm to save you from a fiend. I'll be over tonight - if it doesn't rain."

We are quick to say that we would die for someone - when we aren't faced with that necessity. However, would you give up your house for someone? Would you skip a meal to feed someone else? Would you walk so that someone else might have your car? Would you give up a free period to help someone else? If we think we can follow Christ's admonition to die for someone, why can't we do the smaller sacrifices?

Today, seek out a way to give to someone something they need - and let it cost you something.
