    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]With such sacrifices God is well pleased.—Heb. 13:16.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    If an Israelite’s sacrifice was a voluntary manifestation of sincere
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] gratitude to Jehovah, then[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]making the appropriate choice of animal would likely present no[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] challenge. The worshipper would[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]be happy to give Jehovah his very best.

    Christians today do not
    [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] make the literal sacrifices stipulated[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] by the Mosaic Law; yet they[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]do make sacrifices, in the sense that they use their time, energy,[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] and resources to serve Jehovah.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]
    The apostle Paul referred to the
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] “public declarationâ€￾[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] of[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] the Christian hope and [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]“the doing[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]of good and the sharing of things with othersâ€￾ [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]as sacrifices[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] that please God. [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif][/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif](Heb. 13:15) [/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]The[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]spirit with which Jehovah’s people engage in such activities reveals[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] how grateful and appreciative[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]they are for all that God has given to them. So there is a parallel[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] between the attitudes and motivations[/FONT]
    [FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif]of those who engage in Christian service today and those[/FONT][FONT=Tahoma, sans-serif] who offered voluntary sacrifices in ancient times.
