We are free to choose but…

My Pondering

We can run but can’t hide 🙈 for long.

Adam and Eve were the first to find that one out.

I see reality this way. Free will a bit of space God carved out for us, as we were created in His image.

We are like His children out in a fenced in back yard. If we hop the fence, we are out of bounds and more or less on our own.

The prodigal son parable comes to mind. God doesn’t want us to leave but He doesn’t usually block us either. Our protection is precarious when we are out of bounds.

Like in sport, there are always penalties for going out of bounds. If we are going to succeed and be a winner, we need to play within the confines of the rules.
