A Thought From the Intentional Living Center
By Steve Tanner, Senior Producer, Intentional LivingOur men and women of the US armed forces are spectacular in their service. And our men and women who have served in the past are equally commendable. Think about the sacrifices of so many for so long to keep our country free Think about the gift God gave we who live here when he prompted a little band of freedom-seeking pilgrims to venture out in search of a land that was free. And never forget that their motivation was not just for a better life for themselves but for the opportunity to expand the kingdom of God in His service by sharing His Good News. Think about the sacrifices made by the underfed, under supplied, under trained, and underdog citizen-soldiers of the war for independence… Think about the sacrifices of those who fought brother on brother in the civil war… Think about the sacrifices of the thousands who fought and the millions who were affected by the two World Wars… Think about the brave men and women who serve today, separated from family by geography, but always close to the heart… Think about those who have served and now serve to make and keep us free… And think about the God who ordained all it to happen so that we who are here and free today can do as the first American settlers sought to do… share God’s love with a world in desperate need of Him. “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” — John 15:13
