“I have on my table a violin string,” wrote Ranidranath Tagore.
“It is free to move in any direction I like. If I twist one end it responds; it is free. But it is not free to sing. So I take it and fix it into my violin. I bind it and when it is bound, it is free for the first time to sing.”
Our society believes freedom is to be free from all restrictions and boundaries.
But what if we were created and made to be bound? Bound to God, bound to righteousness, bound to holiness, bound to make a difference in the lives of others, etc.
Freedom from all restrictions and boundaries is chaos. Worse yet, such freedom prevents us from becoming what we were created to be.
Freedom – the freedom to be what we were created to be – is found in being closely bound to our Creator.
His name is Jesus.
Do you know him? Receive Jesus as LORD and Savior.
