Heroism, Selflessness, Sacrifice

Memorial DayThis weekend is Memorial Day, when we remember our freedom comes at a price paid by unseen people giving acts of heroism and selflessness.

Now the tornadoes of Moore, Oklahoma, reveal acts of selflessness and sacrifice also: teachers threw themselves over children of their classes as buildings collapsed around them.

I pray we give thanks to God for all who (like Jesus on the cross) willingly suffer so others can live—this is Christianity at its best!
