Sacrifice, even at its most selfish form, is giving up something now for your future self. This future self could be tomorrow, next month or next year. It could be for you, your family or community. Like studying now so that in a few years you can support yourself and family.
Jesus’s sacrifice was the ultimate sacrifice, in ultimate agony for the future of all humans – A sacrifice for the future of all humanity.
The teaching of Jesus to “treat others as you want to be treated” actually has a deep reciprocity built in. Yes you should be kind and helpful to others, but, BUT – that also means you should be kind to YOURSELF.
You are worthy of redemption. Assume others will treat you kindly as the teaching says. That means you can make mistakes, even bad mistakes, but you can be forgiven – by others and even yourself.
As renowned Psychologist Dr Jordan Peterson’s Rule #2 (From his world wide best selling “12 Rules for Life”): Treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping.
Jesus has risen so Gods “Divine Mercy” is ready and waiting for you.
If you believe Jesus was the messiah then your father, God the father, is waiting for you in his house. Jesus has risen and that fattened calves are ready.
You just need to make the first step.
