Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day. A day set aside to remember the end of WWI (the Germans signed the armistice at 11 o’clock, on the eleventh day, of the eleventh month) and to honor all the men and women who have served this country in times of war.

I am humbled to think about the sacrifices that others have made so that I can experience freedom. Freedom is not always easy–especially when I don’t approve of how some express their freedom–but many have fought and died to give us this freedom.

Today, however, it occurred to me that there are no veterans in the Kingdom of God. No armistice has been signed between God and his enemy. No soldiers have returned from a foreign war. The battle between good and evi stilll rages.

One day we will celebrate our victory; but until that time comes we must keep fighting. As winston Churchill once said, “Never give up. Never give up! Never give up!”
