empire day

Boy, May, you keep surprising me with all these different days. Any Star Wars fans present out there in cyber land?

If so, you probably already know that “The Empire Strikes Back was set to open with a royal premiere in London on May 20, (1980) someone on the promotional team at Lucasfilm or 20th Century Fox was inspired to resurrect the British ‘Empire Day’ holiday, which had been observed by members of the British Empire between 1902 and 1958 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday on May 24.”* I think opening the movie on 24th would have been better but no one asked me.

Empire day got me thinking what empire are you working for? Are you just in the workplace with a dog eat dog attitude? Or are you battling for the Lord?

Remember: “our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6.12

Be on God’s side – His is the only ’empire’ that matters.

Eventually

Men will

Reigns

Eternally

Make sure people know you to…
