Freedom is scary thing

19 Jan

Whilst I was walking in cold gray London this morning it struck me that one of the greatest gifts in life is our free will. The ability to choose what we do and when we do it, the ability to choose our own belief system, the ability to choose how we spend our lives; throughout our history many have died to protect or win this freedom…

It is easier than you might think to have this free will stolen from view. People constantly feel trapped in their work, trapped in their relationships, trapped in their religion. We can easily forget that these were the things that we chose, and that we are free to walk away at any time… Of course we are also free to stay and we are also free to love and we also free to serve…

Freedom is a scary thing because it makes me realize how irresponsible I can be.
