Liberty Brings Blessings — And Responsibilities

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Tuesday, July 4, 2017

If we sat down this morning and started listing the freedoms we enjoy as Americans, nightfall would find us still at the task. The legacy of the United States is a tremendous blessing to her citizens, and our example continues to inspire nations around the world. But possessing freedom is not the same as knowing how to use it wisely. A popular song’s lyric says in part:
“There’s no such thing as freedom
“Without some responsibility
“All this shock and surprise
“But we’ve been throwing out a mean boomerang
“And now it’s coming back at us.”

We have been made the stewards of a remarkable gift that is also a challenging responsibility. What use do you make of your abundant liberty?
