FREEDOM is this week’s essential tool for living in a time of pandemic. We all want to be free from constraints and free to be, but in today’s text from Galatians, chapter 5, the apostle Paul makes it clear that our freedom comes with responsibility and we must always exercise our freedom in love. Remember, “For freedom Christ has set us free. . . you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become servants of one another.” (Galatians 5:1, 13).
