What Will You Do with Their Sacrifices?

“I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human being let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”

Has it ever crossed your mind that the lives we get to live today are the result of millions of people’s sacrifices in the past? Daily, I am becoming more and more grateful for the sacrifices of others. However, I recognize that while the leaders of the past sacrificed to give us to world we live in today, I need to make sacrifices to make the world better for the next generation.

People who make sacrifices to make the world a better place are heroes.

My question to you is: What will you do with the sacrifices that have been made for you?

Your parents made so many sacrifices and did their best for you, what will you do with their sacrifice?

Millions of soldiers have given their lives so we can have freedom, what will you do with their sacrifice?

Histories leaders have had to make millions of incredibly hard decisions to get us to where we are today, what will you do with their sacrifice?

Teachers, coaches, and other mentors that we’ve had made sacrifices to invest in us, what will you do with their sacrifice?

Jesus Christ died on a cross while we were still sinners so that we could be forgiven, have a relationship with him, and spend eternity with Him, what will you do with His sacrifice? 

Stop living just to exist and have a normal life. Live an extra ordinary life. Live for a purpose. Make your life count. Make the world a better place than it was when you got here. Make it a great place for the next generation. Choose to DO SOMETHING with the sacrifices of the heroes of the past.

“We don’t choose where we’re born, but we all choose to be sinners or saints, to be heroes or nobody’s.” -Mama Maggie Gobran
