I want to remind you that freedom is both a right and a privilege. As adults, we are free to do as we please, but we must also remember that our freedom should not diminish the power of others. Our words, actions, and movement should not restrict or harm others.
True freedom comes with consequences, both good and bad, and we don’t always get to choose which one. We must learn to embrace the two sides of freedom: Evolving and Excellence. We are free from the strongholds that once held us captive, yet confined to the hand and will of God that we may evolve into better and greater versions of ourselves, freeing us to become excellent representatives of the love and compassion of the God we serve.
As 1 Peter 2:16 says, "Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God." We should use our freedom to serve others and follow God's will for our lives.
Otherwise, we are just spoiled and entitled adults screaming freedom while shackled to pride, ego, and arrogance. Let us embrace the true meaning of freedom and use it to bring glory to God and make a positive impact in the world. Remembering that our freedom is not just for ourselves, but for the betterment of those around us.
"For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don't use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love." - Galatians 5:13 (NLT)
