July is Purposeful Parenting Month

“Kids today! They have no [insert quality lacking here]! My parents would have never let me get away with that!” How many times have you uttered that sentence? Or one similar?

Or the latest, barely-there outfit being worn? How did this happen?

“But I am free!” The student exclaimed with enthusiasm. “We have more freedoms today than we can possible realize or take advantage of! I mean, have you read the first five books of this thing?” He asked, gesturing to the heavy Bible laying on the desk in front him. “And the first four books of the new part aren’t much better. I mean have you seen the numerous laws and requirements Christians are ordered to follow. Freedom through Christ? That isn’t freedom!” “Then what is freedom?” The professor asked. The bell rang, startling many students who were unprepared for the end of class. “Homework assignment!” The professor yelled, while students began gathering their things. “Two-page paper with an answer to my question - What is freedom? What is freedom according to you, and what is freedom according the Bible? Remember, I want specific verses, used in correct context! And if you all come prepared to discuss, I won’t grade for content, only completion.”
