“While Everyone Else Is Taking Life Let’s Do Our Part To Save It”

The movie “Hacksaw Ridge” is about US Army medic, Desmond Doss. Doss was a Seventh Day Adventist who wanted to serve as a medic in the army but refused to carry a firearm. His refusal caused problems with his superiors.
A trial was held to court-martial Doss and he was asked why he refused to carry a weapon? He said, “while everybody is taking life I’m going to be saving it.”
Think about those lines…”while everybody is taking life.. I’m going to be saving it.”
All around. us, life is being taken. Oh, not in the literal sense but psychologically. We live in a very critical, finger-pointing world. Much of what we experience discourages us. In a world filled with discouragement, we need encouragement.
I love the line… we all need to do our part to save life instead of taking it. Encourage someone today. Give someone a call to find out how they are doing.
Let’s do our part, to build someone up…. to encourage, when everyone else is taking life.
