Let go of the chains that society demands your identity be attached to—because no one has ever broken free of chains by binding themselves to yet more chains. Freedom doesn’t work that way. Freedom involves letting go—loving yourself and loving others without agenda, judgment, or political alignment. Freedom involves agreeing to disagree and championing truth, life, individuality, and creativity. Freedom involves drawing the gold out of one another, instead of segregating according to difference. Why not let the chains fall away and become a child of freedom?
“Learn this well: Unless you dramatically change your way of thinking and become teachable, and learn about heaven’s kingdom realm with the wide-eyed wonder of a child, you will never be able to enter in. Whoever continually humbles himself to become like this gentle child is the greatest one in heaven’s kingdom realm." Matthew 18:3-4
