The Value of Sacrifice
Many of the sacrifices we make every day make us feel good. But what Jesus experiences and teaches in Mark 6.1-13 is hard to go through. As Jesus continues on His Road to the Cross, we learn that a climate of unbelief may require a sacrifice of relationships and of “creature comforts” - if we are to expand the Kingdom of God. And even for a short time, that kind of sacrifice does not feel good.
