Freedom: It Starts With the Soul

Freedom must start with the soul. The essence of who we are. What we are sold out for. What we are living for. The things we choose that are bigger than ourselves. Bigger than our own pleasure, power and momentary satisfaction. I witnessed that in Cuba. People living in physical bondage, in poverty and without political freedom, but totally sold out spiritually to something bigger than themselves. Some of them had such abundance in their poverty. A peace which exceeded my human comprehension. I wonder if that’s what Christ meant when he said “Blessed are the poor of spirit?” Being poor in our own power and ability but strong in God’s power and ability. Surely freedom must start with the soul.
