Thursday January 22nd, 1 Corinthians 6: 12You may say, "I am allowed to do anything." But I reply, "Not everything is good for you." And even though "I am allowed to do anything," I must not become a slave to anything. It is the American dream to be free to do whatever you darn well please. It is of course just a pipe dream. You can be your own person and there are still rules to follow. No one can make it all on their own.  We are all interdependent not independent.   In the end we all serve something in life whether that something be God, or money or power or order or job or security etc. In the end it is not a matter of if you are a slave but rather what or who you serve as a slave. Down through history there have been those who live the illusion of making it on their own for short periods of time but even the greatest maverick in the end, on their death bed, faces what life is all about. You are however free to choose. You can choose to follow God now and enjoy a lifelong loving relationship with the creator of all, or you can choose to fight that until the end, seeking your own self-absorbed substitute for satisfaction in life. Both lives end up in the same place, it’s just that one was surrounded by the love of God and the other was working feverishly trying to plug that empty hole while pretending it was not there.
