Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you.
How many times do you do something because you "should"? What is the conversation you have with yourself just before you do it? How does it feel? Now think about the things you do because you have a passion for them and a freedom and a love for them, you do them because you love, because you care, or because it's fun, or there's joy. Or, you do them because you know that down the road your actions will greatly improve the foundation of your family, so you want to build roots out of love.
If your life is living in a mode of "shoulds" then I want to challenge you to think outside the box. Say bye bye to this, and hello to something far more amazing. Options. Freedom. Choices.
God put us on this incredibly beautiful earth with an unbelievably large mix of variety. In that, He has given us freedom to love each other, play, create, learn, grow, and be with him. He said be free, live free, you are free! The sacrifice he gave for our freedom was the cost of his own child, so I'm certain that he meant exactly what was said: live a free life, take your stand!
So, bye bye, Should!
