Contrary to popular opinion, giving up more things doesn't always make one holier
Since we don't have the option of "not serving anyone or anything" in this world, let's make sure that we choose to serve One who loves us
Once we have been pronounced free from the penalty of our sins, may we not condemn others who have also been set free by the same process.

Is having great power worth it, if it comes from the wrong source?
If God mercifully paid for the consequences of our sins, how should we respond to that grace?
Are we dragging unnecessary burdens through our lives?
