The worst of times brings out the best in some people. As we think about sacrificing for others this week, we find some extraordinary stories.
One such story from 70 years ago spotlights a very brave woman.
John 15:13 says, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."
During World War 2, Romanian Princess Catherine Caradja defied her government’s alliance with the Nazis. When Allied bombers flew over, targeting oilfields, several planes were shot down. The ever-smiling Princess Catherine made sure the crews were taken to hospitals to be treated.
She then made sure they escaped through Italy, and back home! In all, she saved over 1,000 men. The terrible conditions brought out the best in the Romanian princess.
Such examples show us very clearly that courage can be found when necessary. Who knows, maybe you will be called on one day to sacrifice all for someone in danger. Just know that the Lord has always known your destiny, and He knows you will stand strong that day.
Let’s pray. Lord, Jesus is our ultimate example of a friend that lays down His life for His friends. Thank you for His ultimate sacrifice. Amen.
