A Long Obedience

A wonderful essay by David Brooks, and I think is a great reminder that “freedom” as a concept is not the ultimate end for humanity, but that freedom is bound by the commandments (in the OT) and the Holy Spirit (in the NT, Gal 5).

That willing binding (as much as an oxymoron as it is) is what gives me a sense of richness, and a reassurance that I am not the be-all-end-all navigator of my own existence.
