Happy Independence Day! – Love One Another, Unity

“And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of  sins.” Be hospitable to one another without grumbling. As each one has received a gift,  minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” I Peter 4:8-10 NKJV


As a Canadian, I am truly blessed to have such wonderful friends and neighbors south of  me. Our bond of friendship goes back a long way. We have the longest undefended  border in the World! Some even say we are true Brothers and Sisters.

Just to give you one example of our enduring bond, this monument is located right on  the border in Peace Arch International Park. It is an open border between British  Columbia and Washington State. Canadians and Americans can freely meander  between the U.S. and Canada throughout this beautiful park. You will notice the  inscription which indicates a brother and sister relationship.

This bond is a wonderful example of how God wants us to act towards each other. As Jesus says, “…a new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples,  if you have love for one another.””

John 13:31, 34-35 NKJV


Thank you for your friendship and bond. I am truly blessed to have wonderful neighbors  like you!
