30 Days of Thankfulness, Day 19: Living in a Country with Religious Freedom

Today, I am thankful that I live in a country where I can proclaim to be a Christian, generally without fear of being arrested or much worse.

Although Christians in America are becoming increasingly targeted and bullied for their beliefs, America does still stand for religious freedom.

Did you know that some Christians around the world aren’t even allowed to own a Bible, let alone talk about what’s in it? Others are cast from their families and their communities for their beliefs. Others are subjected to much worse torture. I encourage you to remain educated on what’s happening so that we can help our brothers and sisters around the world. Voice of the Martyrs is a good place to start.
