Matthew 5:37 "All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one."
1 Corinthians 10:31 "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."
1 Peter 3:1-4 "Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, when they see the purity and reverence of your lives. Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. "
Self-sacrificing is a difficult thing to do, especially in a society that is focused on self. It seems easier to die for someone than to live for someone, because at least if you were to die for them it would be a one time thing. Living for them means a daily sacrificing and constant humility that I am not sure if I could do. I pray that God gives me a serving heart. Maybe, as Christians, we should put away our "If...Then"s and bring out our "Yes, Lord"s.
