A soldier and a savior

It’s Memorial Day, and I live in a country where people have fought and died for my freedom. I also live in a realm where someone died for my salvation.

For me to live free on this planet, a soldier died. For me to live for eternity, a savior died. My entire existence, physical and spiritual, is based on who died before me. What a humbling realization.

Thank you, veterans, for your service. Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice. I am so grateful.

    Thank you Juli for today’s thought, it is so true, I lost my soldier 11 years ago so I completely depend on that savior you spoke about, especially more on holidays.
