From the Women of Faith Study Guide Series Balance:
This section tells of Mary Slessor who moved to Western Africa to established a missionary in a very dangerous area. She left what she knew and was comfortable with in order to follow Christ. That is something that is not easy to do. Give up what you know. But sometimes necessary.
"We all have moments in our lives when we sense God calling us to leave something behind in order to lay hold of the something new God has for us."
Sometimes those things are harder than others. Why? Have you prayed and sought His answer? That is hard to do as well. Waiting until you hear what He has to say is so important though.
One of the questions, how willing are you to sacrifice for the sake of others? Are you? Have you?
God sacrificed something so precious we could never fully understand nor grasp what He did. But it is something we should all strive to do. Sacrifice for God. For others.
