“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. Also, we are to share what we have with others. Doing so 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
