As we celebrate those who have given their lives for our country, let’s also remember those who have been martyred for their faith in Christ through these Bible verses for Memorial Day. The cross is a stumbling block for many and people are still slaughtered today simply for loving Jesus. Let’s pray for those under persecution and for the families of our precious brothers and sisters who remained faithful until the very end.
A Time for Everything
- There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.
- A time to give birth and a time to die; A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
- A time to kill and a time to heal; A time to tear down and a time to build up.
- A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to dance.
- A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones; A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
- A time to search and a time to give up as lost; A time to keep and a time to throw away.
- A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak.
- A time to love and a time to hate; A time for war and a time for peace.
