Paid for with Blood

My brother Zach, at Marine Basic Training Graduation, is second from the back.
Someone has paid for me with blood.  How the knowledge lifts my sights beyond the moment's hot desires!
~Elizabeth Elliot~

Just as we should not scorn our soldiers' sacrifices, neither should we forget the death Christ died for our sins.  If I remembered, I would be less likely to rush into selfishness.
