True Freedom

I am currently getting ready for the basic traffic theory exam and I am amazed that there are so many traffic signs and rules that I have to remember! I never realise that driving is so "restrictive"! Why can't we have more freedom and just drive by our common sense?

What a stupid question since the answer is so obvious right? Without these rules, there would be chaos and we wouldn't get to our destination in one piece; we lose the freedom of driving to wherever we want if we all choose to be free from traffic rules!

Similarly, Life is governed by spiritual rules. If we want to reach the destinations of Peace and Joy, we must follow the rules; they are put in place not to "restrict" us but to give us true freedom to get to our destinations.

"Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death." (Romans 8:1-2)

This is exactly what a priest said when I attended a lunchtime mass today. Water must be channelled properly in canals and pipes for it to serve its purpose - run turbines etc. Free Water becomes a chaotic flood! So we do need rules and organisation to function properly.
