|Grateful Greetings, July 4th 2019
Joshua 24:13 - And I have given you a land for
which ye did not labour.
Stewardship has been defined as, "The careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care". Life, itself, is a journey in stewardship, and in no area is the stewardship of our country more important than the stewardship of
Freedom, Opportunity, Integrity, Trust,
Dignity, and Justice For All in America.
As Americans, we must strive to preserve the foundations, the very bedrock, of our freedom. America can only reach her potential if we believe in America, and we act on that belief. We, each one of us, must build on the best of America and work to overcome her shortcomings. The work of citizenship is never finished. Too much has been given, through labor and sacrifice, by those who came before us, for us to fail to do our part for future generations.
On this Fourth of July, 2019, we celebrate America! We express our gratitude for the blessings of the freedoms we enjoy! But that is not enough. We must also make a commitment to fulfill the responsibilities freedom places on each of us.
In appreciation of your friendship,
Bradford L. Sims
