Today is Memorial Day. It is the day that we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the US military. Many of them were not much older than you are right now when they died. Like you – they had plans for the future, and dreams about what they wanted to do in their lifetime. But, those plans did not happen, their dreams were not fulfilled. Instead they departed this world too soon, and left an empty chair at the table. It is important that we remember the fallen. They paid for our freedom with their lives. You come from a military family so it is important that you understand what this holiday means. Take a few moments today to ponder their sacrifice, thank God that you live in a free country, and remember the fallen.
John 15:13. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
