HEAT BETWEEN TRUMP AND MILITARY LEADERS
On Monday, President Donald Trump launched an unprecedented public attack against US military leadership, accusing them of waging wars to boost the profits of defense manufacturing companies. “I’m not saying the military’s in love with me — the soldiers are, the top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy,” Trump told reporters at a White House news conference. Clearly, it can be observed that Trump’s relations with leaders of the Pentagon are intensifying and becoming increasingly strained.
This attack came right after Trump was accused of convincing the Public last week that he had not made a series of reported disparaging remarks about US military personnel and veterans, which were primarily reported by The Atlantic magazine. The magazine read that at the Aisne-Marne cemetery during a November 2018 trip to France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, Trump said the cemetery was “filled with losers.” Other outlets, including Fox News, have confirmed much of The Atlantic’s reporting, which Trump and the White House vehemently deny. In response to all of this, Joe Biden has publicly declared Trump to be “downright un-American”.
Now people of God, I must make the very important statement that as soldiers for Christ, even if you particularly are a veteran, the gospel truth is that whether or not people of your country decide to honor you, God will honor you for your service in his Kingdom. Remember that we are in the world but not of it, so do not expect to receive more honor than what u are given. Proverbs 25:6-7 (NIV) reads, “Do not exalt yourself in the king’s presence, and do not claim a place among his great men; it is better for him to say to you, ‘Come up here,’ than for him to humiliate you in front of his nobles.” Essentially, this scripture is instructing the reader not to seek and demand honor out of your own efforts, but to let honor seek and find you instead. This is how God wants you and I to live… a life where blessings follow us wherever we go.
