John Ch. 3 vs. 16
How often we revel and bask in someone else’s glory (our rich parents, ancestors, notable friends and relatives). We boast about pedigree and achievement, forgetting that some people fought the wars, built the walls and labored to acquire the fortune we rely upon. Others died so that we might live. For our peace was actually bought by the blood of many. They worked for it and suffered for it! The present is in fact built on someone’s past. You cannot therefore forget to pay homage and give honor to whom it is due. Our duty at all times is to guard every great legacy jealously, building on it with love, truthfulness and passion. God Bless America! Happy Independence Day!
