Freedom has its life in the hearts…

Standard

4th-of-July-729x1024

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.

 Galatians 5:13

Freedom has its life in the hearts,
the actions,
the spirit of men
and so it must be daily earned and refreshed –
else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots,
it will wither and die.

~Dwight D. Eisenhower

Happy Independence Day! …

Standard

 

“Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book,
and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited!
Every member would be obliged in conscience,
to temperance, frugality, and industry;
to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men;
and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God …
What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be.”
John Adams
2nd U.S. President and Signer of the Declaration of Independence
