This is a Monday when we go to picnics, ballgames, family gatherings, etc., and they are all good things. Yet, in the midst of those activities we need to remember all those men and women who have given their lives for this country.
We are able to enjoy hotdogs and hamburgers at our picnics, enjoy watching our local team win a game, and enjoy being with those we love because some were willing to leave their hotdogs, hamburgers, games, and families to go to far off places to give their lives for those freedoms we enjoy.
The greatest sacrifice was in the war against sin when Jesus gave his life for you and me so we can be free from the chains of sin that lead to death.
Memorial Day is a day of fun, but it’s more importantly a day of remembering and being grateful.
