It seems that there are many people who believe that freedom means living your life as “I please”; and it matters not who gets hurt. As long as “I can do what I want”, then freedom means, “I am answerable to no one else”, “I can drive however I choose”, “I can say anything I want to say”.
If that is the attitude of “freedom” you have, then you of all people are enslaved. Real freedom is taking responsibility, for your own actions, for helping with others who have needs, and considering others before yourself.
Hear what the Word of God says:
“For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another.” Galations 5:13 (KJV)
The Christian’s freedom is considerate of others. It does not wish its own way; but the way that will honor and glorify Jesus our Lord and Savior.
