Victory

Yesterday, we returned for the first time in many years to the First Division Museum at Cantigny Park.

I was struck by the fact that there is no permanent peace in this world. Our costly victory in World War I sowed the seeds of World War II. Our hard-fought victory in World War II was followed by the global spread of communism. Our victory in the Cold War was quickly replaced by the challenge of Islamism.

Only in God’s kingdom, our entrance secured by faith in the One who died and rose again, will our swords be turned into plowshares and our spears into pruning hooks.
