Freedom in Precepts: Monday Manna for July 5

Monday Manna

The purpose of Monday Manna is to get together and get to know Christ more through His Word.

On the first and third Mondays of each month, anyone who wants to participate can post their thoughts on a specific verse--posted here at my blog on the Thursday before, to allow you to chew on it over the weekend. It doesn't have to be long -- just a few thoughts, a picture you feel helps express it, a poem, a short story, a devotional. Just post it on your blog on Mondayish (early OR late is fine, by the way!), then come back here and link up in the Linky Tools gadget that will be at the bottom of MY post at o'dark thirty that morning.

With Canada Day today and American Independence Day on Sunday, I couldn't resist slipping SOMETHING in about freedom. Of course, our freedom in Christ is different from the freedom many celebrate at this time of year. What a blessing it is for us to have both.

And now, without further ado - the verse :D
I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts. I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame. Psalm 119:45-46
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you can take some time out of your holiday weekend to think on and write something for this verse. I'm looking forward to it.
