No Greater Honor
There is no greater love than this: to lay down one’s life for his friends.
When a person enters the US military, they take an oath to support and defend the constitution of the United States. In that oath, it is implied that one may be called upon to lay down their life for their country and fellow service members. This is why there is such a strong code of honor amongst all that have served in uniform. That code is LOVE: for God and country – a gift given to us by Jesus Christ.
All glory and honor goes to Jesus Christ. HE gives us the example, “As the Father has loved me, so I have love you. Live on in my love (v.9). Jesus is our great “Warrior” – advocating for peace and love. The late Buddhist monk, Thic Nhat Hahn captures this vision beautifully:
“Veterans are the light at the tip of the candle, illuminating the way for the whole nation. If Veterans can achieve awareness, transformation, understanding and peace…they can teach us how to make peace with ourselves and each other, so we never have to use violence to resolve conflict again.”
