Complete Freedom

All mankind is striving for freedom from some form of enslavement. Many, if asked just what they would be willing to do to improve their condition, would doubtless answer, "Anything," forgetting that complete freedom from all evil can be experienced only in proportion to one's freedom from the wrong thinking that starts and supports the evil.

We are in most cases asking much when we ask deliverance from all the ills of the flesh, plentiful supply of the needful and good things of life, achievement and success instead of failure. But the Bible is replete with declarations of God's goodness and of His abundant bestowal of this goodness upon His children. The fault, then, is not that we are asking too much, but rather that through ignorance or neglect we have overlooked the fact that there can be no compromise with error, no turning away from God's commands, either because to our sense these seem too strict, or because we believe our offense has been too slight to consider.
