Memorial Day: Remember Biblically

It's Memorial Day!

While we remember those who died in wars fighting for freedoms, Chelsea and I see what the Bible has to say about memorials.

We look at the history of Memorial Day, then observe three points from the Bible:

  1. Those who sacrificed their lives should be remembered
  2. Memorials should not be forgotten.
  3. Memorials should not be idolized.

Scriptures Referenced:

John 15:13
