Galations 5:13 (NLT) For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.
Galatians 5:13-15 (MSG) It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don't use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that's how freedom grows. For everything we know about God's Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That's an act of true freedom. If you bite and ravage each other, watch out—in no time at all you will be annihilating each other, and where will your precious freedom be then.
A good reminder as the election is just around the corner and the opponents are slinging mud. I read a blob post yesterday (since I'm posting late) that talked about such things. We should always be focused on the good we're doing rather than the bad that others are doing. That is our purpose, to serve one another in love.
Make your choices deliberate and wisely.
