It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
In America we have it so very good. And for that we don't have elected officials to thanks but those brave soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines who fought and died in battles, wars, and conflicts to help secure the freedoms we enjoy. I always have a hard time wondering why merchants on this sacred holiday have mattress sales, furniture sales,and car sales. Seems disrespectful to the deceased in a way.
Our country has to be vigilant to maintain and protect this freedom. Evil and tyranny is out there and even within our own country trying to dominate and control. Socialism and communism is not what these men and women who died had in mind. Freedom goes hand in hand with the love of Jesus too. Communism exists in a godless society. When you see a living war veteran usually displayed on their head with the cap that says Vietnam, WWII etc, be sure to shake their hand. Maybe buy their lunch. Enjoy your Memorial Day and what it means.
PRAYER: Lord I know there are many parts of the world in bondage to dictators. I know Satan would love that to happen to the US and has minions working for him to try to do it. Help us be vigilant in staying free and one nation under God. In Jesus' name. Amen.
