If there’s one thing we Americans value above everything else, it is freedom. We cherish, guard and exercise our freedom, and woe to those who threaten it in any way.

We’re even willing to go to war to defend freedom, whether it’s ours or someone else’s. We are the world’s self-appointed watchdogs of freedom.

But Jesus says there’s a higher value than freedom. In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus speaks not about freedom, but about obedience to the will of God. A God Alert

The more we become Liberated.
