Today's Scripture: "They shall bind the breastplate by means of its rings to the rings of the ephod, using a blue cord, so that it is above the intricately woven band of the ephod, and so that the breastplate does not come loose from the ephod." Ex 28:28

When we want things to stay put, we use various means to hold and anchor it. The national anthem of the United States has for decades been a tool for accomplishing that. The flag represents the fight for independence, law and order, emancipation, voting rights to each citizen and the right to freely protest anything.
Yesterday, that freedom was exercised by many professional athletes who choose to kneel during the playing of the national anthem while veterans, some with missing limbs lost in conflict, stood to honor it. Personally, I'm glad these pampered, overpaid, cupcakes are protesting. Not only do they show their lack of character, but beg for attention they can't get on the field. They also give me reason to stop watching any professional sport and the vulgar television ads and promotions that accompany it. Personally, I wish they'd started protesting years ago because Americans are better off not paying them.
All I ask, God, is for You to be a rudder to guide me, wind to move me and an anchor to hold me.
