Are You a Soldier or a Warrior?

He asked his friend, “What is the difference between a soldier and a warrior?” The man who came from a long line of Samurai warriors replied,

“Soldiers wait for the battle to come to them and then fight for their life.

Warriors take the battle to the enemy and fight for a cause.”

What are you fighting for?

What stand are you making?

Are you a soldier or a warrior?

Do you know what you are willing to die for?

Do you know what you are willing to live (fully and courageously) for?

We are all soldiers in a way. Aren’t we? We wake up, do our day’s work, fielding questions, requests, and solving problems. We fight in and with our circumstances, sometimes with heavy albeit grateful hearts.

Happy Memorial Day. Enjoy the parades and cookouts with friends and family.

Remember those who fought for our freedom – the soldiers who serve around the world.

Honor them by living your life as a warrior. They gave you another day to live and to make a difference.

Find out what moves you to be the change that your world needs.

And go do it.
