2020 was a challenging year for all of us in so many ways, and especially for those in Law Enforcement. As we enter into 2021, I’d like to pose a question to a phrase that was brought up so many times last year. What is essential? We’ve heard from government leaders and experts on what they believe our society can and cannot do without. But what about you? What is ESSENTIAL to you? As God always does, He uses difficulties to help us refocus our attention on what really is important. So many institutions that we put our trust in were shaken – the government (federal, state, &local), healthcare, the justice system, and the financial system, to name a few. Yet God has shown Himself over and over again to be Faithful and Trustworthy. I’d like to invite you to deepen your relationship with our Heavenly Father this year. Get into your Bible more, set aside more time for prayer, and spend time with others who share your faith. Add these to your ESSENTIALS list for 2021.
