2 Samuel 24:24 But the king replied to Araunah, “No, I insist on buying it, for I will not present burnt offerings to the my God that have cost me nothing.” So David paid him fifty pieces of silver for the threshing floor and the oxen.
A sacrifice isn't a sacrifice if it doesn't cost anything. Love requires sacrifice - sacrifice of time, sacrifice of self, sacrifice of money, and on and on.
We show love to God and to others when we sacrifice something for their good instead of our own.
