Sacrifice comes from two Latin words meaning "to make sacred." In the Christian dispensation we sacrifice whenever we offer a perceived good to God. Whether it be a kind action, a kind thought, or a kind word, when we offer it to God, we make a sacrifice.
Oh, God, I want to make my whole life a sacrifice! Only I don't know how! Perhaps if only I can offer my whole life to God, I can make a sacrifice pleasing in the sight of the Almighty.
