Why can we worship, freely, in America? Because someone made a sacrifice of their lives to keep our nation, free. Unfortunately, so many of us think that Memorial Day is just a three-day weekend with fun, sun, and family time. All of these things have their place, but in all of our celebrating with BBQs and family outings, let’s don’t forget to take time to reflect on the ones who gave their lives so that we could live in a free country, established by the Constitution.
It is humbling to me that someone would be willing to lay down their lives for me, and isn’t that what Jesus Christ did? The difference is that soldiers live in our memories, while Jesus Christ is still on the throne. That in itself, is enough to make we want to do my best to give my all to worship and commitment.
So many families have been touched by the loss of loved ones in war, so out of respect, let’s take some time, to recognize their service to our country, and say thanks.
