What does the word free mean?

Free = Not under the control or in the power of another
            Able to act or be done as one wishes

            Not held as a slave or prisoner

            Not physically held by something

If you stop and think about the meaning of this word, you have to wonder if all teens know this is something that they already have.  

Free to Not be controlled by an unhealthy habit, an unhealthy addiction, an abusive home or an unhealthy relationship.

It is something God gives each and everyone of us if we truly have faith and believe it is ours.  But if you don't have a positive role model around, how does one know this is true? 

In a world where there are so many teens desperate to find themselves, why not take the time to look for just one and offer them a little positive advise.  They're in our neighborhoods, our schools and our churches just waiting to be found.  It takes so little of our time.

We all have to take a step if we want to better the future of the young adults that will one day soon enter into our society as young adults.  Do we want to see them positive with positive behaviors or to continue to see them with negativity and making bad choices.  Why not reach out and look around and see if we can touch just one life this week and share the meaning of what free is.

A point to ponder on my friends...
