Show Your Appreciation

The Live Like It Matters Challenge this week is to show your appreciation for someone who has served or is currently serving our country in the Armed Forces and show your appreciation.

Say hello, pay for a meal, write a note, tell them thank you……..just honor them in some way for their service.  Listen as they tell a story about the time they served. Sit and enjoy a cup of coffee with them.

Simply acknowledge what they’ve done or what they’re doing.

Then think about the freedom you enjoy.


On this July 4th, let us remember what true freedom is.

“It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don’t use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that’s how freedom grows. For everything we know about God’s Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That’s an act of true freedom. If you bite and ravage each other, watch out—in no time at all you will be annihilating each other, and where will your precious freedom be then?”
