“Obedience to law is liberty.”
Plain and simple.
If we are living according to the laws of the land and the higher moral law, then we have freedom.
I think we often feel rules and guidelines and laws are restrictive. They prevent us from doing what we want to do, they control us, they limit us. That’s what we think.
But in fact, it’s the opposite. Obedience to laws brings freedom and happiness. It takes away worry and uncertainly. It builds security and esteem. It allows us to develop into who we were truly meant to be.
