Greater Love

Greater Love
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
Hey Kids:
I dug out an old photo of my dad in uniform to share today.
I remember as a child he would show us this picture and tell us a little of the things he did in service. He laid telephone lines and called artillery fire.
He also taught us a little German. I thought kartoffeln was just another word for potatoes because he would just ask us to pass the kartoffeln. When I took German in high school, I learned I had actually learned bits and pieces of another language.
Take a little time this weekend to find out who has served in your family.
Ask mom and dad to dig out old photos and tell a few stories of your families sacrifice of love.
Don’t forget to say a thank you to those still living and don’t forget to thank the One who gave the greatest sacrifice of love for us.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
