Tomorrow, our nation will be celebrating its independence and freedom with parades, fireworks, barbeques, and family gatherings. Citizens of the USA are proud and thankful for living in a country that provides “liberty and justice for all.”
But there is a greater freedom to celebrate — the freedom Jesus provides with His grace, mercy and death on the cross. He has made us truly free — now this is a cause for real celebration.
And Jesus does not want us to keep this celebration to ourselves — He wants everyone to know they have been freed from their sins. Our LWML Mite Box offerings do just that. Men, women, and children can support our national and district mission grants through their prayers and Mite offerings. These ‘Mighty Mites’ will keep the good news of salvation and ‘freedom’ flowing around the world.
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom
(2 Corinthians 3:17).
