Beyond sacrifice

Sacrifice is sometimes seen as trading: I give up my life so that I get eternal life; I sacrifice my life so that I placate an angry god. Giving beyond sacrifice is giving because it needs to be done: These people need it; If we don’t do it, it won’t get done. Sacrifice is a commercial transaction, a so that; out beyond sacrifice is giving without expecting return, giving because.
