"With freedom comes responsibility."
We have free will. God lets us choose. Look at how Christ dealt with the people. He said his peace and then let them choose to follow him or not. That does not mean the decision is easy. It is a choice, just like love is. Love is a choice. Love of one’s spouse. Love of one’s family. Love of one’s country.
What will one do to show his love?
What is a person willing to give to protect?
Christ showed the ultimate love: giving of His life for others.
This holiday weekend, we stand in awe of those who chose to love, and showed that love by sacrificing self.
"Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
