"Greater love has no one than this that one lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13

As we prepare to welcome Memorial Day, we should be thankful for those who put their lives on the line to preserve our freedom. We should take time to remember the unsung heroes who served this great country. 

When we spend time with family and friends and relax on a weekend of fun, we often forget to consider the sacrifice of those who are no longer with us; brave men and women who served with dignity and pride. We forget to give thanks for those who bravely gave their lives. 

Jesus said, “Greater love has no man than this that one lay down his life for his friends.” Christ set the ultimate example in giving His life for each one of us. On Memorial Day, we should honor those who gave their lives for our nation. And as we remember, we should think about the One who gave His life for our salvation.

Let’s take time to remember why we celebrate Memorial Day and humbly reflect on those who will not be sharing a weekend of fun. Thank God for their service to our country! 
“The best way to pay an unpayable debt is to show with our lives that we didn’t forget.”

Dear God, Thank you for moments to reflect with a grateful heart. Thank you for the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives. We will never be able to repay them, but we will honor them if we take time to remember…
