SWEET FREEDOM DAILY DEVOTIONAL: Dog Eat Dog

Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble.
1 Peter 3:8

We live in a dog-eat-dog world, where people feel the need to get ahead by any means necessary. When we tell our competition to “break a leg,” we might actually mean it. When our opponent says, “Bite me,” we just might. Think Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding. Or, more literally, Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson. You get the idea.

The antithesis of this “me first” spirit can be found in charitable organizations that help those in need. In 2009, this spirit was present when five women from Texas read a book by their fellow Texan Marcus Luttrell. After reading the best selling book Lone Survivor, they felt they should do something to give back to soldiers and their families. They created a non-profit organization called the Boot Campaign and got celebrities like Dwayne Johnson, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, and the cast of Sons of Anarchy to be photographed wearing combat boots.

Their motto? Walk a mile in their shoes. The organization – whose goal is to “awaken the patriot in all of us” – now gives more than $2 million to the military community each year. I wear their dog tag-inspired necklace on TV and love it when it’s recognized. The group’s selflessness is an inspiration.

Sweet Freedom in Action

Today, perform an act of charity for someone in your family or your community. Be the inspiration.
