Wednesday Word: Service Over Self
Even in the crazy times we currently live--today, November 11th, Veterans Day--still resonates deep in our hearts. It’s a day we have the opportunity to honor those that have honored others over themselves. To honor those that choose to serve our country and put it all on the line to ensure the very freedoms and liberties we enjoy today, are protected and preserved.
Throughout the life of our country, men and women have chosen and are still choosing to potentially put themselves in harm's way to protect our way of life. This can never be overlooked or forgotten. They literally guard the gate for our freedom every second of every day. So as we salute them today and thank them for their service, let’s also take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate the blessing we have to live in this country. The country that still, in the middle of our current turmoil, serves as a light to the world.
May all of us continue to focus on the truth of God’s Word and how we can best help our fellow man, not tear them down as the world would have us.
God Bless our Veterans and may God Bless the United States of America!
