‘Should any person from you bring forward to the LORD an offering…so begins the Torah’s discussion of sacrifices. How do we bring a sacrifice today? The Sfat Emet answers this question by explaining the verse “from you bring forward to the LORD and offering” in light of the Mishna in Pirkei Avot “do away with your desires on account of God’s wishes.” In our day, every time we put aside what we want for what God wants, we are offering a sacrifice to God.
