Content # 2 - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Though this Life maybe a struggle
Our goal is to find meaning
To walk this finite journey well
Content to Rest in His providing.

To work our hands in honest toil,
Refrain from injury to others-
From challenge never to recoil,
And from His Truth to never waver.

In all of these a Thankful Heart
We are to keep in steadfast Hope,
To trust His Word, it will impart
The Strength we need when we grope.

Regarding all men were made free
We speak His Wisdom for the blind,
With the prayer they too might see-
His ways alone is Peace of mind.

and to work with your hands,... so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody.'

    Thinking about 'attachment', where does 'all men were made free' appear in the bible, Cynthia?
    I wonder if we were all free then became attached immediately we were born?
