    How do Christians practice sacrifice and selflessness... What sort of practices do you do?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Everything that I do for someone else that is inconvenient to me.

    Yes, I still have boundaries. But if I am only about preserving what is mine and never about also giving what I can, I will never be selfless enough to willingly lay down my own life for others if I need to.

    Ok let's see. Well! On Christmas day, im going to be washing dishes for the homeless/underprivileged at some, charity like centre as there will be loads of food for them. I hate doing dishes when they are too many, so i thought i'd do that which i really hate for a change. It shouldn't be too bad though as i'll only be there for somethingl ike 4-5 hours. That's if there are no changes since there's the covid issue.

    The honest answer is with great difficulty.
    Giving what one can afford is very easy whether in terms of money or of time/self, it is the giving when it is costly that is hard.

    Selflessness. I think of this word often. Could it be like humility?
    One of the best examples would be a father or mother raising kids. If they are not rich, putting the kids and their growth first. They themselves are not the main people in their lives. And pastors often are putting everybody else first to serve them. You can’t be totally selfless except ‘meditators’. But you sure don’t need to be first.
    Humility- don’t think more highly of yourself than you ought. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. Humility is certainly the way and it pays. Submit to one another. Don’t be right all the time let others be right. We being many are members of one body.
    Tithing is also very selfless- don’t be in love with money!
