The thought, or satan's false promise, that more disposable income could make me and my family happier (or free) continues to be a challenge for me. I need to stay immersed in the Truth of God's word and the promise of the Gospel to be free.ReplyDelete
John 17:17...God's word is truth...nothing will set us more "free" than the gospel of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!...Freely, Freely by Carol Owens in 1972ReplyDelete
My old friends who tried to convince me that partying, drinking, lust, sex, drugs and 'living life' would give me true freedom and satisfaction in life.ReplyDelete
Not sure that I can answer this one...I know that all things of this world are temporary compared to the Gospel and the Good News of ChristReplyDelete
I too struggle with that mindset if thinking that financial "freedom" is the Gods purpose for my life. I have to remind myself that the word of God sets us free from our own thoughts and perceptions of life. He Gospel is the only truth.
