How often do you pray for opportunities to go and tell (to testify) family and friends about Jesus? How often do you pray for your non-Christian family and friends to trust the Lord Jesus?
Imagine regularly making three voluntary offerings and two mandatory offerings as an observant Jew. Imagine the financial cost, the animals that are slaughtered before your eyes, and the exhausting journey to the temple.
