    Humility before honor

    “Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility.” Proverbs 18:12 I have heard the saying, “death before dishonor,” on many an occasion. Usually while watching war movies. I often wonder – what does that really mean? Does it mean that one would fight to the point of death before bringing shame to one’s country? Or does it mean that you would rather die than face losing? To fight for one’s country is probably one of the greatest forms of humility. Jesus himself died to save us, even though we did nothing to earn it. In return, we were given a promise that we would never…

    Trust in the Lord

    “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me.  My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.”  – Psalm 28:7 Sometimes when I turn on the television to catch up on current events, my heart sinks into my lap.  It just seems as though there is never enough good news to go around.

    Lest We Forget

    “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” – 1 Corinthians 16:13 The song, “O Canada,” says, “God keep our land, glorious and free.  Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee. Oh Canada, we stand on guard for thee.” In the bible God commands us to be on guard.  To stand firm in our faith; be courageous, and strong. That’s exactly what the men and women who are represented on November 11th did, when they fought for Canada.  Remembrance Day stands for all of these things. If it weren’t for these men and women, we may not be able to stand with liberty for…
