“Honor to whom honor” on Veteran’s Day

After a significant battle some of David’s men suggested that those who were not actually in the battle should not share any of the spoils that were recovered. David responded this way:

“You shall not do so, my brothers, with what the LORD has given us. He has preserved us and given into our hand the band that came against us.Who would listen to you in this matter? For as his share is who goes down into the battle, so shall his share be who stays by the baggage. They shall share alike.” (1 Samuel 30:23-24 ESV)

Recent excavations by the University of Münster have uncovered a portion of the Roman road at Troas. A member of the staff said, “We like to think that this is the road traveled by the apostle Paul when he entered the city.” Perhaps this photo helps illustrate the statement in Acts 16:8 which says “they came down to Troas.” The Aegean Sea is visible in the distance.
