We honored our veterans at church on November 13th - thanking those present and those who have passed on for the service they gave to our country.  One of our very own --  Michael Dixon, an army veteran, delivered a powerful message about putting on the Whole Armor of God.  Before the message there was a mention of the mantra that is upheld among those serving in the military.  The Airman's Creed:  “I will never leave an airman behind;"   the Soldier's Creed: “I will never leave a fallen comrade;"  the Marine's Creed:  "We never leave a Marine behind.  If you see a fellow Marine who needs help, step up and step in." 

Each statement is simple, and in my opinion we should challenge ourselves to think that way about our fellow man.  Consider the parable of the lost sheep.

Matthew 8:12 - What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off?

We have sheep who have gone astray; we have gentle ones who have lived in the wilderness and know no better way.  Each Christian has at some point gone astray. Thanks be to God that someone came to find us!

Look for the lost sheep and bring them in.  Be aware of those who are lost and may need your help in being "found."  LOVE them back to the way of the Lord.  Let's leave no fallen man (or woman) behind!

Give THANKS with a grateful heart!
