Honor today seems to be fungible, subject to the current whims being pushed on social media at any given moment. While we virtue signal commitment to the latest “cause celeb” without having to do anything meaningful.
Commitment to social justice requires a statue to memorialize George Floyd while embracing a movement to denigrate men of true honor represented throughout our history.
Up with Floyd, down with Jefferson and Washington…Franklin and Lincoln. No man is without flaw…but honoring a criminal above Washington is a travesty.
Honor must go beyond virtue signaling. It is a mark of uncommon selflessness. Corrie Ten Boom and Arlington Cemetery are true representations of honor.
The rugged cross of Calvary is tribute to the highest honor. Empower me to be an honorable man.
Scripture: “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. John 10:11
