Love is the motivating factor that characterizes all our actions. Genuine love is that which gives itself for the sake of others without any expectations or hidden motive. One is able to give oneself and feel happy for having touched and enriched someone else.
This is the result of all our actions. Since all our actions stem from the deeper commitment and love for God, the actions are permeated by that divine love and therefore becomes service to humanity.
Sacrifices are a meaningful way of life by which we are able to consider the needs of others around us. We sacrifice something so that some one else can have a better life. Sacrifice involves the giving oneself, and not merely giving from that “extra” of one’s abundance. Sacrifice means giving up for the sake of the others when it really hurts. It involves giving of one’s knowledge, wealth, and time and may be life when one perceives the need.
