COL Mikel Burroughs good read/share: for the Colonel's Motivational Quotes of the Day. Where the mighty American Bald Eagles roam in the mighty MOUNTAINS OF CASTLE ROCK, COLORADO AMONG THEIR EAGLES-NEST. I know the view must be MAGNIFICENT on this day September 27, 2020 as you might glance upon the mighty snow capped mountains headed into the month of October. As you know I would respond a lot throughout the week, but I am full-time DOD employee doing contracts for the Defense Contracting Management Agency. It is good to have some time on the weekend before I start my running around to respond my friend.

Today's theme is "Devotion Day", I “What you treat with devotion, grows.” — Unknown Author
You have to have devotion on the RallyPoint Nation to post as many reads/shares as I do for sure!

The picture depicts my inner-thought:

SFC (Join to see) - What an excellent quote and MEME for devotion today Joe. Thanks my devoted friend for the share andyour depiction today. Let me leave you with my final thought...

“We can be devoted to many things, but on today be devoted to yourself, your beliefs, your family, the American Flag, and your country. May you always have the devotion of duty for your brothers and sister that are in need of help throughout this country; may you display the highest degree of motivation, inspiration and positive attitude as you devote your life to goodness, support, and giving to others; may you continue to take care of yourself to exercise that devotion daily; and keep safe, secure, happy, and healthy during these uncertain times. There are no shortage cuts or compromise when it comes to Honor, Respect, and Devotion of Duty. Honor & Respect Always – Warriors for Life!” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

I expect you treat those who are devoted to you and your family with respect and honor. Pet dogs and to some degree cats are devoted to those who care for them. Hopefully you are devoted to the LORD for your salvation and sanctification. I expect that you appreciate material objects and are not devoted to them. ‘No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and [mammon] money.’ Matthew 6:24, ESV] my brother-in-Christ SFC (Join to see).

Hopefully you and I are devoted first to the LORD and secondarily to our family members and trusted friends. It is only to the degree that we place the LORD first in our life that our other relationships can blossom. I trust that we treat each person with respect and honor since we understand that the soul of each person is created in the image of God. After all the only permanent aspect of this life is relationship which like the Word of God is stored in our soul. ‘Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.’ [Matthew 6:19-20, ESV]
I lift the radical rioters, looters, their managers, controllers and financial backers in the USA, Canada, India, Europe as well as the leaders in communist China to YOU LORD. Do what it takes to shake these people to their core and draw as many to YOU as YOU are willing. I recognize that in YOUR perfect timing YOU will burn the rest like chaff. Thankfully YOU are in complete control of all including the situations in Seattle, Washington; Portland, Oregon, Kenosha, Wisconsin; Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and New York City. YOU are working all to good for the Body of Christ corporately and individual believers as well. Too many of these have taken advantage of the elderly within their care. Since they are dishonoring the elderly, they deserve the opposite of the blessing ‘Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may go well with you in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.' [‘Deuteronomy 5:16 ESV]
I pray that each adopted son and daughter of YOUR who reads this prayer is devoted to demonstrating faith in YOU to our family members, friends, coworkers and especially strangers. Let love reign in our lives. Empower each of us to be hospitable to whoever YOU draw towards us or us towards them. 'Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.' [Romans 12:9-13 ESV].
I pray that you and your family members sleep well Sunday night and will awake refreshed and healthy on Monday morning.
By the power and authority of the Name above all names, Jesus the Christ.

Good morning Col Burroughs. I love the topic. We often see people who do their duty or their work in a negative, grudging way. And then we see those who do it with a smile and positive attitude with love and devotion, and it makes all the difference. I hear parents ask "how do you get children to do this or that thing?" By example, by love and by showing them devotion at work. As a leader, a parent, a teacher, a caregiver, devotion is critical to the wellbeing of those entrusted to our care.

Lt Col Charlie Brown - All excelllent choices for the quotes you shared today Charlie. You're explanation about carecgivers, teachers, leader and the like is "spot-on" without devotion to help, support, and give where would this world be... Let me leave you with my final thought fot today on devotion and devotion to duty...

“We can be devoted to many things, but on today be devoted to yourself, your beliefs, your family, the American Flag, and your country. May you always have the devotion of duty for your brothers and sister that are in need of help throughout this country; may you display the highest degree of motivation, inspiration and positive attitude as you devote your life to goodness, support, and giving to others; may you continue to take care of yourself to exercise that devotion daily; and keep your family safe, secure, happy, and healthy during these uncertain times.
