Why struggle to choose?
“The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.”
John 10:10 NLT
It is contradictory to appeal to freedom and the right that I have to live my life, when what I do steal, kill, and I destroy myself.
For many, this license is not the purpose of living life, on the contrary, they do it to escape from their lives; since any excess, be it drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, gluttony, consumerism, etc. that will eventually end stealing hopes, killing meaningful relationships, and ultimately, destroying individuals, families, communities and entire nations.
Why is it so hard to accept the full and abundant life that God offers us free? Why is it so easy for many to leave the abundant life in exchange for theft, death and destruction?
