Sacrifice might appear barbaric in today’s times but that might be because one doesn’t feel the message. When a person is willing to give up to G-D their most personal possession because of their devotion then one is truly in touch with their true calling. The sacrifices of today don’t require us to slay a lamb but cut into our expanding ego instead. By not eating our dish clean, thanking G-D 1st when receiving accolades, or taking a moment to say thank you to the one driving the train even as everyone else believes you have the keys you are making that sacrifice now. Furthermore when one sacrifices “their valuable time” to help another that is a sacrifice which burns brightly. We can make those sacrifices today and in so doing keep the meaning alive to the truth of who is really in charge with love.
