Cowboy: Lord, thank You for blessing our nation with freedom.
God: Freedom is not a blessing to everyone, son.
Cowboy: Why, Lord?
God: Because some use their God-given freedom selfishly, and even refuse to be thankful.
Cowboy: Why do you continue to give them freedom then?
God: Because as long as there is a heartbeat, there is hope they will change.
Cowboy: What can I do, Lord?
God: Remember that real freedom is not about doing what you want, but about doing what you should, with My Spirit’s help. Let that kind of freedom shine through you.
Cowboy: With Your help, Lord, I will.
“For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom…” (2 Cor. 3:17)
