Bondage or Freedom?

chains

do they bind me,

keeping me earthbound

when i want to soar?

do they restrict my movements,

preventing me from doing what i want to do?

do they fence me in,

preventing me from going where i want to go?

or

do they hold me secure

in the storm,

preventing me from being swept away?

do they tether me

to that which i must remain connected?

do they surround me,

protecting me from unseen harm

close at hand?

Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves.Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor (1 Peter 2:16-17 NIV).
