EVERY day


The day after the nice long Memorial Day weekend is usually a little blah since it means back to school and work. Today seemed like it was following suit as the alarm went off this morning. But then it hit me . . . ( no, not the alarm, it just plays music to wake me up - there is no physical harm involved ) . . . we set aside ONE day to honor and thank those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom, and then as soon as the NEXT day, we quickly forget that and go on with the "drudgery" of the routine of another 24 hours. I was reminded this morning to be thankful EVERY day - not only for the current, social freedom that I enjoy, but most importantly the eternal, spiritual freedom that I have through Jesus' death on the cross in my place. I desire to live EACH day in a way that says "thank you" for the freedom I have, and honors the sacrifice made for me.

SOAP verse: 1 Peter 2:16 "Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God."
