Flying to Freedom

According to Oriental legend, a traveler once entered the marketplace and came across hundreds of birds for sale. When the man saw the creatures in their cages, his face grew sad. He asked the price of one of the birds, and, after laying down his money, he opened the cage and let it fly away. The traveler repeated this scenario with every bird, until they’d all been freed.

If we take an honest survey of our lives, we may find that we, too, are living a life of captivity. Imprisoned by habits of our past, we long to be set free. But . . . as Christ says in today’s Gospel, “if the Son frees you, then you will truly be free.” By the grace of God, we have a Redeemer who paid the price for our freedom. Through His death, Jesus threw open the prison gates and now, He invites us to soar.

Prayer: Christ my Deliverer, You have set me free.
