Guardian Angels In Uniform

jan-3“Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.” Psalm 127:1 (NIV)

Our country has been experiencing some attacks against authority figures for some time, but lately those attacks have been targeting law enforcement officials. It is very sad and unfortunate that people will turn against the very ones who put their lives at risk to save theirs.

Jesus, before drawing His last breath on the cross, interceded on behalf of the very soldiers who followed through orders to kill Him, by praying, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” Luke 23:34 (NIV) Jesus forgave all of the trespasses that were made against Him; unjust, unfair, inhumane suffering placed on Him by soldiers following orders. Yet, our people are going around killing innocent law enforcement workers simply because they hold a grudge against people in uniform.

Sometimes television shows depict law enforcement officials as corrupt cops who give in to the greed of money and drugs, making it seem like that is the norm. The tough reality is that many families must sacrifice time without their loved ones who serve in law enforcement because they must work dangerous jobs and long work hours, oftentimes being on call for when crisis arises. Unlike other careers, one who works in law enforcement must be ready at any time an order is given to protect their fellow citizens.  Without hesitation they march out, one by one, ready to die, if needed, ready to make the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of mankind. They do not question the orders, they simply go, serving with pride.

Families live in fear today because their loved ones who enlist to serve and protect may end up following orders to march out and will never make the road back to their homes. Freedom is not free. While we rest at night, there are valiant people standing guard and keeping watch on our behalf. Let us pray and let us make a conscious decision to protect – as much as we can – those who freely choose to protect us.

 

“Lord, please help us to honor those who place their lives on the line for us.”

 

For His Glory
