Countless wars have been fought. Wars fought over love, money, power, resources and religion. Among these, the most horrific wars was fought over religion. Religion has a way that transcend into other aspects of war. Wars fought over who's God is greater, who's god is false, and who’s god is still with them.As we look into the history of the Hebrews, we see that they fought over land, freedom and in God's name. For those that survived, they were granted an inheritance, ownership of the promised land. For those that died in the wars, I believe that they are with God.
As we look into today's history, we still see religious wars being fought in our own country, our own country that was founded on Christian principles and belief. Our country's soldiers have died protecting us. In remembrance of them, we give a day to celebrate them, Memorial Day.
As Memorial Day comes around, be grateful to those who fought on your behalf. They gave you your freedom, they gave themselves to protect you, your ideals, and way of life. Be strong and courageous and not let fear come to you because God is with you always.
Today's devotion comes from:
Deuteronomy/2 Kevcai 31:6
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.
Nej yuav tsum ua siab tawv thiab nyob khov kho tsis txhob ntshai cov neeg ntawd. Tus TSWV uas yog nej tus Vajtswv yuav nrog nraim nej, nws yuav tsis ncaim nej lossis tso nej tseg li.
