In motherhood, the everyday question - "Will I sacrifice?" is answered every time a child’s concern or need must come before my own, which is most of the time.

The everyday question, however, asks not just about what I do but also about my attitude
Will I joyfully pour out my life as a fragrant offering before the
Lord for the benefit of my children? 
Will I serve my children out of obligation and duty or will I serve
like I'm serving God Himself? 
Will I die to myself so that I might live to God in the specific
calling He has given me as a mom?

The question "Will I sacrifice?" must be answered every day.

Motherhood is not so much the big, dramatic acts of sacrifice, 
but the little, every day, unseen ones.
~ Christine Hoover
And let us not grow weary of doing good, 
for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up
Galatians 6:9
