During World War I, families with a son in the war would place a star in the window. A man was walking along with his grandson when his grandson asked “Why do all these homes have stars in the windows?” The grandfather explained to the son what the star symbolized.
They walked along and every time they passed a home with a star in the window the boy would smile and clap his hands together. Then the boy pointed up to the sky and pointed to a star. “Look,” he said. “God must have given his son too!”
Many gave their lives for their country, but God gave his son for the world.
