One Big Way to Say Thanks This Memorial Day

2 Minute Read

One of the most important and powerful gifts Americans have is our freedom.

We can choose where we work, where we live, how we worship, and what type of life we lead. Making your own choices is an incredible luxury. But that luxury didn’t come without a high price.

Many men and women sacrificed it all protecting our country and our freedom. They gave this country everything they had, and it’s our job to give what we can in return. The best way to honor those who paid the ultimate price is to enjoy the freedom they provided and to give back. In order to bless others, we must be financially free.

Recently, General Jeffrey Talley, chief of the US Army Reserves, told Dave, “Financial readiness impacts the readiness of a soldier.” The same holds true for all Americans. When you’re weighed down by the burden of debt, it keeps you from choosing the life you want. Who wants to turn down a career they enjoy because it doesn’t pay enough to cover their car payment or student loan?

Debt doesn’t have the final say on your life—you do. The people who made the ultimate sacrifice didn’t do it for Sallie Mae or credit cards. They did it so we can have endless opportunities. They made an impact on other people’s lives, so let’s honor them by doing the same.

Think of what you could do for your family, your church, and your community if you had no debt. How many people could you help? What kind of an impact could you make?

Our freedom came with a cost, but using our freedom well is priceless.

Thank you to all the men and women who have served and made our country a better place.
