You hear a lot these days in Christian circles about freedom in Christ. Christ has set us free! Yes, He has! I’m so grateful for that, but just why has he set us free? Does that mean we are free to evaluate all the philosophies of the world and make our own decision about how to live our lives? Can we merely follow our desires and tell ourselves that God gave us our desires and we’re free to pursue what we love to do?
If we are truly born again, we are bought with a price. We are to be servants of the Most High God. Our lives are not our own. We belong to Him, and the only reason He left us on this earth is to serve Him, not to pursue our desires.
How can I know what is the right way to raise my kids? How can I know if something “questionable” is okay to do? Are there any FAQ’s to help me make wise decisions? How can I raise my kids to be able to make wise decisions when they are no longer kids and looking to me for guidance in daily decisions? Or when I’m dead and gone? There are so many philosophies out there. How do I evaluate them?
