Day 334

Today’s Reading – I Corinthians 5-8

I have the freedom to do anything, but not everything is helpful. I have the freedom to do anything, but I won’t be controlled by anything.   I Corinthians 6:12 CEB

Grace and Mercy are wonderful, but I wonder if we have not gone a bit too far in our thinking as it relates to them.

We live in a country founded on freedom and yet we are not free to run into the proverbial theater and shout, “Fire!”

In the same manner having freedom in Christ (grace and mercy) does not gives us freedom to do anything we want.

Deep Thought for the day: Have you become controlled by grace and mercy?


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
