Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Sacrifice is a powerful principle that will change our hearts. We can trust the Lord will accept our efforts to make sacrifices in love and loyalty.
And then the angel spake, saying: This thing is a similitude of the sacrifice of the Only Begotten of the Father, which is full of grace and truth.—Moses 5:7
Sacrifice is an amazing principle. As we willingly give our time and talents and all that we possess, it becomes one of our truest forms of worship. It can develop within us a profound love for each other and our Savior, Jesus Christ. Through sacrifice our hearts can be changed; we live closer to the Spirit and have less of an appetite for things of the world.—Carol B. Thomas
