This is the twenty-third installment in Eric Ludy’s epic summer Daily Thunder series entitled Spiritual Lessons from WW1. This episode examines the personal experiences of a young German soldier and his experiences in the Battle of Ypres in October 1914. This young man’s nobility, self-sacrifice, and sincerity are touching, earning him two Iron Crosses for his bravery under-fire and the admiration of the onlooking German world. However, the most gallant and daring feats spent on behalf of the wrong agenda, do not lead to triumph, but tragedy. Every one of us, as believers, are prone to the same misadventure in our lives. There are many false causes to fight for, but there is only One Savior worthy of the entirety of our lives.
