Sacrifice: Putting Others First
WOW, what a week of being FIT@50. I got married—how cool is that.
Putting others first was the right decision. Our kids come after God, so to make sure not only the young, but the not so young could join us, we stayed in our hometown.
There were five other people on this planet involved in the planning. They too chose to put others first, because they were kind enough to honor our request and not let a word slip about our surprise.
I believe because we chose to put others first, the wedding went off without a hitch. It included our most favorite things: Family, food and cake. I’ll confess that when it came time for cake, I did put myself first.
The bible encourages cheerful giving – that includes giving of yourself for others. Sacrifice: Putting Others First
