Happy 4th of July
For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. (Galatians 5:13 ESV)
This 4th I challenge you to take a moment and thank God for the country you call home.
Give thanks for the liberty, and pray for the brave.
And then as your fireworks light up, sparklers fizzle in your hand, or you catch some form of the celebration from afar bow your head in humble thanks. And then when the truths of gratitude are felt, let your praise like fireworks explode for the blessings of God, land, love, and home.
