Freedom Rings

Most of us cherish the freedom and independence that is ours in America.  Few people will celebrate more than our brother in Christ, Mosab Hassan Yousef!  He was granted temporary asylum this week in his case before the Homeland Security officials in San Diego and we can only trust that this will become a permanent grant in short order.  Why the government felt it even necessary to try a case such as this is beyond absurd but it is fitting that the verdict was so quick to come forth during the 4th of July weekend.

Your responses to this event were incredible and your prayers in support of Mosab were humbling and encouraging even to me as a bystander and bearer of news.  Even CNN and liberal newspapers were bringing editorials to bear on this topic and if you Google Mr Yousef’s name you can still see the events that have unfolded around this topic.

The Tampa Bay area was stunned this week at the deaths of two police officers during a “routine” traffic violation.  One of the occupants of the car being stopped was not so routine and opened fire as the officers approached their vehicle.  It reminded me as we honored our military men and women that our local and state police, sheriff departments, and all local law enforcement personnel are doing unappreciated jobs all the time with little recognition or respect. 

This year as you think about the freedoms we enjoy, remember to include our domestic peace officers as well.  They may not be allowed to let you buy them lunch when they are on duty, but when they are in their civvies and you know who they are, pick up their check or just say thanks!  They will know what you are talking about.  In fact, you can say “Thanks” even when they are in uniform.  That would help to let Freedom Ring!

Galatians 5:13-14 (RSV) “For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love be servants of one another.  For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
