Celebrating Freedom

Cara Uncategorized 0 Comments

Happy Fourth of July! I don’t know about you but every day, I am so grateful to be from the United States. There are things I don’t agree with (Mandatory health care), but I am always thankful that I was born and live in the United States of America. As you celebrate with family, friends and fun, I wanted to share some thoughts on freedom. What’s your favorite quote or verse: 
Webster’s 1828 Dictionary definition of the word, “freedom”:
  
1. A state of exemption from the power or control of another; liberty; exemption from slavery, servitude or confinement. Freedom is personal, civil, political, and religious.
   
Quotes:
All we have of freedom, all we use or know, this our fathers bought for us long and long ago. ~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899
For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail? ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, The Works of Ralph Waldo Emerson, vol. 9 (Poems) [1909]

Scriptures on Freedom:
For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself” (Galatians 5:13,14).
“For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king” (1 Peter 2:15-17).
