Freedom

With freedom comes responsibility.

I have been reminded of this principle recently as I have been driving myself places more often. It is such a blessing to have the ability to go places by myself, but I now have no excuse to put off those things which I have always said I wanted to do, but couldn't actually do because I had no way of getting there. I am now faced with the choice to either do what I ought to, or put it off. It is easy to say that I want to do what is right, but wanting to makes absolutely no difference unless I am willing to exert the effort to actually do it when the time comes.

"Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin."
~James 4:17
