Lesson 28: Consecration and Sacrifice as defined by Elder Bruce R. McConkie:
“Sacrifice and consecration are inseparably intertwined. The law of consecration is that we consecrate our time, our talents, and our money and property to the cause of the Church; such are to be available to the extent they are needed to further the Lord’s interests on earth.
“The law of sacrifice is that we are willing to sacrifice all that we have for the truth’s sake—our character and reputation; our honor and applause; our good name among men; our houses, lands, and families: all things, even our very lives if need be” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1975, p. 74; or Ensign, May 1975, p. 50).
How have you sacrificed for the work of the Lord? What have you done this week to sacrifice your time or talents? The lesson gives some scenarios that are major decision regarding the laws of Consecration and Sacrifice reading through them I asked myself would I be willing to do what was right for the building up of the Kingdom or would I be selfishly and do what was best for me. When we trying to live the laws of consecration and sacrifice will help them respond unselfishly and constructively to frustration, confusion, and impatience, as well as to matters of time, talent, and money.
