Today is National Spirit of ’45 Day. 1945 was a year during World War 2, when Americans had to all step in and help out–not just the soldiers, people at home too. The country all sacrificed and gave up things to help win the war, even from miles away. Women and kids stepped up and took over jobs when the men went to go fight. Everyone went without things like rubber, gas and leather for things like shoes, because it was going to the war efforts. They are called the Greatest Generation. They believed in something so much they were willing to do whatever it took. That sounds familiar… (EndGame reference, right? “Whatever it takes”)
Do you have that attitude? Are you willing to do whatever it takes? For your family? In your school work, music, sports? We’re not talking about getting obsessed with it, but do you care enough to give everything you have? God expects us to care about things in our life. We can’t get by with just an ‘eh’ attitude.
Christ gives me the strength to face anything.Philippians 4:13 (CEV)
Dear Lord, Help me to care about the important things in my life, so I’m willing to sacrifice and work for them. Help me to see the joy in the work. Amen.
