To me it doesn't make much sense.

It doesn't. This is one of the concepts I'm hoping to change. There is nothing wrong with the right kind of sacrifice, such as sacrificing to give your children a better life. That is a sacrifice that can make sense, life-affirming in this life. We don't really know what happens after death.
