I had a little time while my wife was shopping so I decided to go to a nearby local airport and look at the small airplanes. I have always enjoyed just looking at or watching them take off and land. I happened to notice a man pushing a small plane out of a hanger and putting a for sale sign on it. I went over and talked to him. He said he needed to sell it so he could pay his daughter’s college tuition. He went on to say that he loved flying very much but he loved his daughter more and her education was very important.

We do not know or understand all the sacrifices parents have made for their children and families. Quite often children do not realize until they become parents and have to make sacrifices for their children or loved ones.

The Bible talks about a sacrifice that was made for us that we will never totally understand. It was when Christ Jesus died on the cross, (Romans 8:5, 1 Peter 3:18). It was by the shedding of His sinless, innocent blood that we have the hope of the forgiveness of our sins. And by His sacrifice and resurrection from the grave we also have the hope of forgiveness of sins and eternal life, (Titus 3:5, John 3:16&17) that is life forever with God in Heaven. See you in church next Sunday. Brother J
