As we come to Memorial Day this year, it’s appropriate to take a moment to say a word of thanks to those who have put their lives on the line to preserve our freedom. Give thanks to those who have given their lives for their country. We think about those who did this in World Wars I and II, in Korea, in Vietnam, in the Gulf War and more recently, in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other parts of the world.
We remember those who gave their lives in these wars. Jesus said, “Greater love has no man than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” Certainly these have set the example in service to our nation. But Jesus Christ has set the ultimate example in giving His life for all mankind.
On this Memorial Day, we honor those who gave their lives for our nation. As we remember them, think about the One who gave His life for our salvation.
