With greater freedom comes greater responsibility. (Victor Hugo, 19th century French author and dramatist)
Some seem to think that freedom means they can do whatever they want to do without any restriction. That view overlooks the accountability that comes with liberty. As children grow, parents try to instill in them a sense of duty that comes with more independence. Freedom gives us the opportunity to be productive, responsible human beings.
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked (Luke 12:48)
