It’s easy to find people who are excited about this upcoming weekend, and of course, for good reason! Many will be hitting the highways and waterways this holiday weekend, and I hope everyone enjoys some quality time with their families and friends. Just please remember to be safe, and think of the “other guy” as well. Above that, also remember to express gratitude for those that have sacrificed so much for you and I to enjoy our freedom and our way of life. Others have paid the bill for the privileges and pleasures that we often too easily taken for granted, and their memory – as well as their families – deserve our respect and honor.

And speaking of honor, this Sunday at Liberty Hill we will be continuing our 2012 Family Life series as I talk about the “The Value of Honor.” Honor is a fundamental necessity for a strong nation, and the best place to learn and demonstrate the value of honor is in the home. Join us this Sunday at 10:30 AM and see what the Scripture can teach us about developing healthy families!

Enjoy your weekend!
