Sacrifice and stewardship

Naturally people like to perpetuate privileges they have by virtue of birth or citizenship or position in the government. It is commonly said as the cushioning of the nest. Sacrifice when combined with stewardship, is to set aside the privileges for a greater cause.
Governor without perks: Nehemiah was a high-level official serving Artaxerxes the King. When he heard about the status of the city of Jerusalem, was saddened, burdened, and prayed. He got favor in the eyes of the king as his face indicated his sorrow when he served as chef or cupbearer. God in His Sovereign plan, deputed Nehemiah to be the governor, that he would rebuild the city. He served for twelve years. He refused to accept allowance of food, as it was to be raised by increasing the tax of Jewish people. The governors who served before him, collected forty shekels of silver as their daily ration. Their deputies, servants following the example of the governor used to lord over people by extracting extra money for themselves. Nehemiah extended his hand to do the work in building the wall and did not acquire any land or assets. (Nehemiah 5:14-16)
Paul worked: As an Apostle, Paul had the privilege to be supported by the church for his personal needs and ministries. Yet, Paul chose to work and take care of his needs and even the needs of his colleagues. (Acts 20:34; I Corinthians 4:12)
Patriarch: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived in tents. (Hebrews 11:9,10) They could have afforded better homes, but a simple lifestyle, in anticipation embracing the city, built by God Himself.
Lord Jesus Christ: The greatest model of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. “Though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2:6,7)
Kingdom people are not bothered about position, power, possessions and privileges. They lay down all these in the feet of the Lord for His glory and Kingdom.
Is sacrifice the mark of my stewardship?
