We don’t typically stop and think of the choice that Mary had to make when she was told she would be the mother of the Son of God. Mary had to choose to sacrifice of her life as she knew it, as she was planning for it to be. So too we need to learn the value, meaning, and importance of Sacrifice. Sacrifice is our of understanding what is to come. It is our realization that the things of this time and place are only temporary, and that if we delay our own gratification, our own sense of reward - we will realize something greater. We will realize a greater reward. Sacrifice is responsibility of the Priesthood. Deeper sacrifice is a key component of Mercy - of sacrificing ourselves for another person. Sacrifice is our expression of Faith, Hope, and Agape.
