Sacraficing Self

The bible is there to be an example for us. The way that the Biblical characters handled situations is there to train us in the way that we should go. Our biggest example is Jesus who sacrificed himself for our sins teaching us what it is to sacrifice. To sacrifice means a great deal to spiritual growth. Letting go of bad habits, separating ourselves from things we were not disciplined in and gravitating to the teachings of God. Learning to sacrifice ourselves for personal growth and the growth of others around us is the duty of man. We must walk accordingly, talk accordingly and train ourselves in the way we should go. We do these things not for show but for the law of the Lord to be instilled in our lives and eventually lead us in everything we do without even trying because it has become a habit. “We must sacrifice the worst part of us to become the best part of us.”
