Memorials spark memories…and memories of selfless sacrifice call out the best in all of us.
This Memorial Day we offer thanksgiving for the sacrifices made in defense of our freedom. We remember the selfless sacrifices of fellow Americans given to preserve the priceless liberty we enjoy. Thank You, Father, for men and women willing to give themselves that we might have freedom unique in all history. But thank You more for the greatest example of self-sacrifice for others…when an innocent Man died a cruel death that mankind might be free from the tyranny of the grave. Through His sacrifice, every one of us was given the opportunity to rise above the darkness which took His life.
May Your sacrifice challenge me to spread the truth of Your salvation.
Scripture: “Greater love has no one than this, that a person will lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
