Honor the Warrior
While we would never want to glorify war, we should honor the warriors. Without the warriors of WWII, we would be speaking German or Japanese. When American warriors pulled out of Vietnam, a million innocent people were slaughtered in the killing fields. From Korea to the Middle East to Central America, American warriors have made the world a safer place. We should be thankful for that. Romans 13:7 says that we should respect and honor all to whom it is due. Clearly, the men and women of the American military are worthy of our respect and honor. Bouncing back and fourth between stories of modern heroism and 2 Samuel chapter one, this Veterans Day message will inspire and instruct believers on how God would have us respond to the warriors among us.
