Dear Younger Me, 

There is joy in sacrifice. When you give of your time to help someone else, when you’d rather be somewhere else, choose not to let resentment win, because you have the opportunity to experience serving. Service doesn’t take much sacrifice when it’s on your own terms, and it fits in your timetable and your mood, but God doesn’t ask you to love and serve others only when it works out for you. He desires a heart that is willing to serve and love others when those opportunities arise, so may you have eyes always open for them. When you find yourself struggling through helping someone, or when your responsibilities to others are weighing a little more heavy than usual, remember to find joy in sacrifice.
