Memorial Day and Business as Mission

Memorial Day is an important day for a nation like the United States. It is a day to remember and honor those who died while serving in the nation’s military. The day originated after the Civil War where more lives were lost than any other US war (620,000). Memorial Day is different than Veterans Day which originated as Armistice Day, memorializing the end of World War I on Nov 11, 1918, and is a day to remember all service personnel.

Memory is a good thing; and it is good to remember the good things and the challenges in our lives, as well as the experiences of others.

Psalms 143:5 says: “I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that You have done; I ponder the work of Your hands.” (ESV)
