So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free. John 8:36
Are you free – free from comparing yourself to others, competing against others, and coveting what they have? Are you free – free from guilting and shaming yourself over woulda’s, coulda’s, and shoulda’s? Are you free – free from disappointments, failures, and unmet expectations? Are you free – free from prejudice, fear, and hate toward those who are different from you and disagree with you? Are you free – free to be you and becoming the best you that you can be? Are you free?
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
Just a thought…is it too much to ask that we replace the political nonsense we are in the midst of with some good old plain common sense? Our political process has become a media circus and is an embarrassment to our nation. How much more of Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump can we stomach?
How about “we the people” of the United States of America begin a new “WE DESERVE BETTER” campaign, and refuse to step into the election booths until we have a few truly viable candidates – people who are actually in touch with real life, and who can honestly identify with the daily concerns, challenges, and needs “we the people” face.
Yet, on the other hand, maybe these candidates are exactly what we deserve, since we have denied, mocked, and left our Creator GOD – our source of provision and protection – and assumed responsibility for our own welfare and taken credit for our own success. Maybe Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump do represent who we are and what we have become?
Personally, I believe WE DESERVE BETTER. I expect better and want better for my children and grandchildren, my friends and neighbors, all my fellow citizens, and also for myself.
