Legalistic and Lazy / Free and Easy

Sinful selfishness is both legalistic and lazy at the same time. It drives us to work as hard as we have to while seeking to get away with as little as possible.

Faith and love enable us to live free and easy in the grace of God, resting in the mercy and forgiveness of Christ Jesus, while gladly working as hard as we are able to benefit our neighbor.

Rev. Rick Stuckwisch said...

Hadn't thought of that. But I see your point. Ouch.
