Psalm 82:3-4 NASB "Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute. Rescue the weak and needy; Save them from the hand of the wicked."Every one of us have family who died serving our country or we know someone who did! I am sure if you asked those brave men and woman, who gave the ultimate cost, what and why they did it, they would simply reply "it was my duty, and honor to serve you and our great country!" Today's verse shares what those men and woman did, and how we should be following their example of service. You see when life becomes about us, and what we can "get out of it", we've lost the meaning of being a servant and helping those in need. As we sit around watching a parade or eating hot dogs and apple pie, may we take a moment and remember those who gave all so that we can live in freedom. Oh, and don't ever forget that Jesus gave His Life so we can live in freedom for all eternity! Have a blessed Memorial Day and serve someone today in the memory of those who gave their life serving us! peace, tom
