Something in our hearts rests when we see people step out of the expected and sacrifice their own success to benefit another. It resonates deep inside of us. For Christians, this hits close to home in that our Savior, Jesus Christ, gave His life and took the penalty for our sins so that we might be forgiven and restored in our relationship with God. He sacrificed, we gained. This is a stark contrast to the world’s anthem to do whatever it takes to succeed no matter the cost.
