Today, this MEMORIAL DAY, we celebrate those who made the ultimate sacrifice of defending our nation as well as honor those who are today in foreign battlefields facing dangers every day.. Memorials are appropriate. They challenge us to stop, remember and give thanks. Throughout scripture, The Lord instructed His people to set up memorials and to remember His faithfulness and deliverance. He knows us well, that we are a forgetful people. Thankfulness must be cultivated. Memories of God’s faithfulness strengthen our faith and fortify our love for God. While we are memorializing this day, think of making an memorial to God marking and thanking Him for countless blessings.
