Tyranny of the Shoulds
Far too often in the Christian life we are driven by all the things we think we should or shouldn't do. We should be kind. We should pray. We should read our Bibles. And then there are the shouldn'ts. We shouldn't get angry. We shouldn't lust, etc. The Christian life is not about shoulds and shouldnts. It's an invitation to a rhythm of life that brings freedom. As the Message puts it, the unforced rhythms of grace.
