As America celebrates the holiday when we became our own nation, some thoughts to ponder about freedom & liberty . . .

Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so
it must be daily earned and refreshed - else like a flower cut from its
life-giving roots, it will wither and die. ~Dwight D. Eisenhower

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from
opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will
reach himself. ~Thomas Paine

And to focus on the freedom from sin that we have in Christ . . .

We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and He will deliver us. On Him we have set our hope that He will continue to deliver us. 2 Corinthians 1:10
