[245] Blood

[245] Blood

Memorial Day is a unique day.  It is not about celebration as is the case with the 4th of July and Labor Day—or for that matter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter.  It reminds us that freedom is not cheap, that its cost is paid in blood.  Memorial Day is about blood.  It is about death.  It is about people who literally gave up their lives so we can enjoy the fruits of living in this incredible country.  Please give thanks for all those people—living or dead—or who either gave, or risked their blood for us.

These heroes are symbols of the one who demonstrated that salvation is also not free.  It is also paid for in blood, the blood of the Son of God.  As we commemorate the blood sacrifice for freedom, may we be reminded of that even greater sacrifice at Calvary.  And may we pray that the giver of that freedom and salvation will have mercy on us and our country.  DC
