Live as free [people], but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God. Show proper respect to everyone (1 Pet. 2:16-17). But blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream (Jer. 17:7-8). Prompt: The above Scripture readings invite each person to live with God in mind. A great strength of Christian faith appears in our personal responsibility to adhere to God’s standards. What hinders us from living that way? What help is available to us? Why do authors (even in Scripture) make their characters struggle and fail so often?
