Freedom is a gift; it’s a treasure. Though we all may agree on that truth, it’s often easy to take for granted the greatest gifts God has given us in our lives, especially in a time of pandemic where natural and normal freedoms are being challengers, and those seeking a return to normalcy are being stigmatized.
Most precious gifts are never free. They came with a price...with sacrifice. They are worth fighting for.... Many brave men and women were willing to face hard battles across the globe in order for us to enjoy that gift of freedom.
For all those who have protected our nation, and for the men and women in uniform still today, together, “Thank You.” Today, take time to remember and say a prayer of gratefulness for the many who have been willing to pay the ultimate price for our freedom and for their families.
May God help us to live so courageously, may we follow the brave examples of those who have gone before us, and may we be the kind of Americans worthy of the gift they gave us. Stand for your rights today. Return to the town centers and revive the businesses.
And thank you for reminding us that there’s incredible love and sacrifice displayed when one is willing to stand strong and fight for freedom.
This service of love and sacrifice on behalf of all people, points us directly to the greatest love of all, the very gift and sacrifice of Christ.
Our Savior was willing to pay the ultimate price, so that we can live free. Forever. Fearless.
