Liberty is not the power to do what we like, but the right to do what we ought. (John Dalberg-Acton, 19th century English historian)

Most people cherish their freedom. They are pleased that they have liberty to express themselves freely and to pursue goals of their own choosing. Lord Acton reminds us, however, that liberty is not freedom to do whatever you want without consideration of others. Nor does it grant unlimited power. It does, however, give you the privilege of doing what is right.

The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. (1 Peter 3:12)
