We are reminded on this Memorial Day how life is filled with too many horrible things that occur far too often – including the reality of war. And that’s exactly why we need to remember something. War always breaks God’s heart because it is contrary to God’s Will. War should always be an act of last resort because its effects linger, often for generations. War is sometimes necessary, and that’s when our fellow citizens who have stepped forward to give their lives on our behalf. So please make certain this Memorial Day that you that you offer a prayer of thanksgiving for the men and women of the military who have died – as well as all who have served –to keep us safe. For in a fallen world world, they offer each one of us an incredible gift of love.
