    Freedom is an inalienable right given to us by God, but it has a high cost associated with it. Freedom is something I think we take for granted in America today. Many younger people have never had to fight for freedom. That’s why it’s important to remember our veterans and celebrate our independence. The pandemic gave us a taste of what it’s like to not have the freedom to do what you want, but real freedom is not about getting to do what you want. It’s about getting to do what God wants. That’s the freedom that I am willing to defend and die for.

    Choosing to do what God wants is discipleship. Discipleship is also costly, but the rewards outweigh the costs as we see in today’s reflection. Discipleship means denial of self; staying on the path (walking in the Spirit); and following Jesus. Lord let it be so with me!
