If you are enjoying your physical freedom today thank a veteran. If you are enjoying your spiritual freedom today thank the Lord Jesus. If you are having problems doing either---start counting your blessings.

            For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:7-8

            It is an overwhelming thought a man would sacrifice his life for me to have the freedoms in this country that I take for granted. It’s even a greater thought; the God of the Universe, the Self-Sufficient One, the Creator, Sustainer, the Life Giver, would send His Son to die on the Cross for my sin.

            Ever wonder why someone for give their life for their country—LOVE! The love of what their country stands for; Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

            David said in Psalm 8:3-4, “When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?” Why would God stop for one second and think about you or me? Because He Loved Us!
