I heard today about someone who has just been told they have terminal cancer and a month to live. I don’t think we all understand just how precious life on earth is. How has a teen and young adult, we all have put ourselves in harms way, so many times and come out of it okay. How as we get older we begin to settle, get complacent, taking loved ones for granted, assuming the world will be the same tomorrow as it was today. Then in a split second, things change & we begin to question, why? or wish we had reached out just one more time to that person who has passed on or praised that child at the supper table for passing the grade instead of having our eyes on the television. How we should of made a phone call to Mom or Dad when we thought of it and not waited. Life is so short and I so appreciate any time I am given and try to live the best way I can.
What would you say to someone if you knew they would not be here tomorrow? What you waiting for?? Tell them now.
I am a day late, however it is never too late to praise the good!
The soldier goes where his/her commander says to go. There is at times, comments made that have been twisted and fall into the wrong minds. Minds that provoke ignorance and disrespect against any person in the armed forces. There is a fine line between who we are and becoming what we actually are preaching against!
“Christians can rest assured that being a soldier is highly respected throughout the Scriptures and know that such service is consistent with a biblical world view. The places and the titles may have changed, but our armed forces should be just as valued as the centurions of the Bible. The position of soldier was highly respected. Yes, the Bible does address serving in the military, directly and indirectly. The Christian men and women who serve their country with character, dignity, and honor can rest assured that the civic duty they perform is condoned and respected by our sovereign God. Those who honorably serve in the military deserve our respect and gratitude. Many centurions mentioned in the New Testament are praised as Christians, God-fearers, and men of good character (Matthew 8:5; 27:54; Mark 15:39-45; Luke 7:2; 23:47; Acts 10:1; 21:32; 28:16).” ~ The Bible Has Answers
I truly wish the COMMON MAN would stop re-writing the Bible to suit their agenda.
May God Bless all soldiers who are serving and protecting ALL THE PEOPLES OF THE COUNTRY , from the presidents and prime ministers, all civilians and the first responders such as paramedics and police forces and even those that demean the soldiers duty! I know it is fact that any and all soldiers will be standing at the right hand side of God for putting their lives on the line to protect their fellow man, woman and child! – Amen!
