The thought came to me this morning about how many people don't act upon all their freedoms. Usually when we talk about "freedom" it's in the context of freedom to worship, or to own firearms or land. I'm certainly grateful for those things being that I worship God and I also own a house and a gun. :)
Our freedom goes far beyond this, and how many never take advantage of their blessings?
We have the freedom to create.
How many people never venture into the realm of creativity?
Like any other freedom we've been granted, there are those who aren't happy when you take full advantage of the creative giftings inside you. They'll try to stop it or at least curtail it by attempting to red tape it to death.
The freedom to create is worth fighting for. Worth standing your ground. Worth a blood-bath once in a while if it's necessary.
