I've Got Your Back

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Last July three officers were gunned down in Louisiana. That same week in another state, Officer Causey pulled into a gas station to fill up his squad car. As he got out, a 73-year-old Army veteran walked toward him and told him, “Thank you for what you do. And just know, I have your back.” Having said that, the veteran turned around to guard the officer as he pumped gas. Officer Causey was shocked.  In the wake of such violence, here was a man willing to put himself in danger to protect him. Once Causey finished, the veteran drove off, not even giving his name. But Causey will never forget him. Ecclesiastes chapter 4 says that “A person standing alone can be attacked… but two can stand back-to-back and conquer.” This week, find someone you can stand with, someone you can protect and serve. It’s the Ecclesiastes thing to do.
