Getting ready to write Sunday’s sermon, I’m thinking about Slavery. What am I a slave to?
“You are slaves of the one you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of righteousness, which leads to life.” — Romans 6:16
Am I a slave to fashion? ?(no laughing, just because you’ve seen my wardrobe). ?Am I a slave to other people’s opinions of me? To food or drink? ?To my ability to produce? To make people laugh? ?The possibilities are limitless. . .
Maybe it’s true that the human condition is one of enslavement. ?I suppose masters are like parents. ?We should pick them wisely. ?But we feel like we have just about that amount of control, don’t we?
