Free to Love
In “Free to Love”, Cory Daniels gives us a closer look at ways in which we allow the “prisons” of life (health issues, busy schedules, financial difficulties, family drama, etc..) to own us, keeping us from looking outside of our needs and wants. When we look outside of ourselves we can love more fully, and have stronger marriages, friendships, and relationships.
Sometimes life feels like a prison. The prison walls might be physical sickness, family drama, economic hardship, or mistreatment by others. Over time, self-pity and victimization take hold of our hearts, and we feel trapped. But in his letter to the Philippians, Paul demonstrates a radically different mindset. Writing from a Roman prison cell, with every reason to feel trapped, Paul invites us to a kind of freedom that no chains can take away—a freedom found only through knowing and following Christ.
