A cop. The toughest of jobs. Constantly harrased by both media and the ones they are protecting. Is it no irony that the Centurion of Rome recognized Jesus as innocent and "the Son of God". That Centurion would be called a "pig" by the liars and sophists who represent the worst part of human nature that cops have to deal with every day. Because our standards have become so low, I fear that our Centurion pool will become of the weakest character--thus I fear that not only will they give in to worldly corruption, but they will seek a worldly way out when their character cannot take this world. Pray for those on the front line against evil. These soldiers need our spiritual support. If we don't have the "moxie" to be a cop , then we can at least enlist spiritual support for these heroes.

At the end of the day what did a cop produce? Did they reduce crime? There's all these cop shows where major crimes were solved every week and the best one could hope in a day is to advert a traffic jam.
