Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:4)
True sacrifice is the ultimate service we can perform in this life. We learn this from Jesus, who made the ultimate sacrifice and remained faithful through his Passion, death, and Resurrection.
Jesus’ greater purpose for this sacrifice was our well-being — that we might have life, abundantly.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
This Memorial Day, as we remember all who have served and sacrificed on our behalf, remember too what Jesus willingly sacrificed for us — and the lessons we can learn from his perfect example of sacrifice.
