Today is a special day in the United States. It is a day when men and women who have served this country in the military, both past and present, are remembered.
The significance of Memorial Day connects us to family and friends who have and continue to serve.
What I remember about these men and women relates to the importance of this post.
1) I remember their volunteer spirit.
2) I remember their dedication.
3) I remember their love.
4) I remember their sacrifice.
These are only four of many reasons we could list why this day is one to remember. It is powerful to consider how these areas are connected because of a loyalty to family, friends, and country. They serve(d) to keep this country free.
Think about the connection to spiritual leadership. Our loyalty to family, friends and the church should be driven by the same spirit, dedication, love and sacrifice. Our desire to lead others to freedom from sin makes everyday worth remembering.
Even more significant is the memorial we celebrate each Sunday for our Savior who exemplified these same four areas.
