Freedom

Memorial Day weekend should be a time when we remember the men and women who fought and died to give us the freedom we enjoy in the USA. There are many who read this who do not have the freedom of religion, speech, the press, peaceful assembly and the right to address grievances to the government.

The United States of America is a wonderful place to live but it does not come without the sacrifices of our military men and women, both past and present, who give their lives to give us our freedom. Most of all remember that in Christ all are free through His great sacrifice on the cross.

Many will spend this weekend out at the beach, picnics, amusement parks and various other activities  without a thought for why they have this long weekend to enjoy whatever they choose to do. 

So stop! For just a few minutes to pray and thank the Lord for freedom and the fallen heroes, and pray for those who are still serving in the military today. Then enjoy the rest of this weekend with thankful hearts.

John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
