“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; … For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
- 2 Peter 1:5, 8
When I am reminded of the beginnings of our nation and the drive of our founders to establish a strong and lasting republic, I am in awe. Accounts in books and letters retell countless stories of people who put into action a type of character that seems to be rare in our day and age. When I consider the phrase, “All gave some … some gave all” – I am reminded of the great sacrifice so many have given for our great country.
Where does one find a strong character that will drive a person to such sacrifice? This weekend is Memorial Day weekend and at Morello Hills our theme is “Faithfulness”. Faith is a hallmark of our nation and it is a driving force behind the ability to be faithful. As we remember in appreciation on this Memorial Day, may we also consider our own faith and faithfulness.
