HOW FREE IS FREEDOM?

IMG_1907“As for you, my brothers and sisters, you were called to be free. But do not let this freedom become an excuse for letting your physical desires control you. Instead, let love make you serve one another.”

Galatians 5:13 GNB

Just because I can doesn’t always mean I should.

God has given us free will, meaning we are not stuck on a chain by him, we have The ultimate freedom to do whatever, but that does not mean you go crazy or please the world in negative ways, please the lord in positive ways by spreading love, exemplifying him, through you, Amen.

This reminds me of the global conversation about freedom of speech. It is a great liberty to be able to say things and be persecuted for them: our beliefs, our dissatisfaction with elected leaders (who cannot jail and kill us for doing so!), and to express ourselves.

At the core however, is something deeper: the Word. Love one another, with our deeds and words. Real affection, whenever possible, is a choice sometimes difficult to make but at the core of Jesus’s teaching.
