I am praying for a good and safe July 4th for all. It is a great day to come together and be thankful for the nation we live in. God placed each of us exactly where He wanted us to be. It is a weekend that we need to take a moment and reflect on the freedoms we have here.

Let me ask you a question. Would you want to live in a country that has less or no freedom? We have read about some of them. Some have even escaped from countries that don’t allow for the freedom and rights we enjoy.

This is only an example, do you want a shop full of cars and tools and parts that are great quality? Then honor the LORD. You could take the next section of verses to mean that but that is not what they are talking about. Of course many would like to have the tools and parts and not have to worry about having them when needed. Proverbs 3:9-10 9 Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; 10 then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.

Careful of that last line too because that can be taken out of context and make us think we are to store up alcohol. Our plenty and our store house should be filled with the LORD and His Word. If we are storing up things it better be things that are good in God’s eyes. We should be ready and willing to give up the things/money when God calls on them. It would be a sad thing to have full barns, garages of cars and parts and not to have a life full of the LORD. The guys of the Mid AM lived this out at Milwaukee when Scott Dunning lost a motor and the Gutknecht’s and others stepped up with a motor and the hands to get it replaced and on the Mile. It was one of the great examples that come out of the MASCS. Stop and think about this. If those things happen in the race community and in the world then how are we doing as part of the Church. Do you need to get anything out of the way so you can make more room for God?

As we come to another Memorial Day and another year where this nation has lost soldiers in conflict I hope we pause and think about the families that have lost loved ones. I hope we stop and thank a soldier, whether they are serving now or served in the past. I hope you stop and really think about the cost of war and the freedom we get to enjoy because others have served and paid a price, a high price.
One way to serve is as a soldier but there are others that serve and are at risk often. Think about EMT’s, firefighters, hospital workers and law enforcement. They too risk safety and even life. The Bible also teaches us that those that serve God will be soldiers for Christ too. In this country that does not mean much but again today I heard of an American pastor that is in jail and being beaten often to near death.

Here is an example of how we are to serve and the attitude of a true servant:
