For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1)Handcuffs take on different forms. Sometimes they are dingy and dark and hidden in shame. Other times they look shiny and pretty and get a place of honor on social media, like two dozen cookies for the class party, a vacuumed-out car, or running a booth at the church carnival. Jesus does not want us to be enslaved by the dark, embarrassing stuff or the stuff we speak about with pride. So for now, let’s put “deep breaths” on the top of the list. Better yet -- scratch the list and just take a deep breath. Now.
