“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” (Hebrews 13:16, NIV)
Of course, it is a sacrifice to do the right thing, because doing so means forsaking the privileges and benefits to which we feel entitled.
Of course, it is a sacrifice to share. It means making do with less of something we, deep-down, want more of; or we think of some others as less worthy of our time, talent, and treasure.
Nevertheless, we are reminded that to pursue goodness, mercy, kindness, and love in all of our relationships; and to prefer sharing all that we have with others to withholding the same from them pleases God.
So, go ahead: Do the things that make our heavenly Father smile. There is no shame in goodness; and it is through giving that we receive. – Luther
