I am going to talk about Sacrifice today. Sacrifice. Sacrifice is a word that when researching it, it talks about surrendering a possession. Surrendering a possession - something that inside of you. A possession, something that you have, that you own, that you call yours, you are willing to surrender it to someone else, give it to someone else, lay it out for someone else. Something that no one else has, something that you can’t borrow from the past or borrow from someone else. It has to be presently yours - what do you possess that you need to surrender? Sacrifice – it’s an uncommon key because it’s not a word that’s commonly used or even a practice commonly seen. It’s a way of thinking, it’s a way of life that when we take what we possess and we lay it out for the masses or even just one person, you will be able to see a transformation happen – not only in that person, but also in yourself.
Another Key learned about what sacrifice does, it is always tied to having more in life. If you think about a seed that goes into the ground, it is sacrificing what it possesses and it’s giving everything it owns. Everything has a value to the earth. It is giving it all to the ground because when it sacrifices itself, it allows the ground to soak into it, it allows the water to come into it, and it opens itself up. And out of that sacrifice, out of the ground you are going to see growth. You are going to see root take place, you are going to see new life happen. And then it becomes the circle of life - where now it takes, it gives, it takes it gives. It’s always on a constant sacrifice. When the seed is planted in the ground, it continues to sacrifice itself even when it is full grown. Let’s say it’s a fruit tree, it’s always giving, it’s always sacrificing of itself of its fruit, its leaves, it limbs to earth, to others, to nature. And that’s what sacrifice is about life.
I want to encourage you today, that when you read this, think about sacrificing what you are for other people. Sacrificing your possessions, sacrificing of your potential. In sacrifice, it’s not an end, It’s a beginning to a greater life. And that’s why it is called an uncommon key.
Milton is genuine, persistent, and sincere. There are very few things that detract Milton from his pursuit of what he believes in. His attitude is fantastic and professionalism top notch. -
