“Liberty without responsibility undermines liberty.”

– Andy Stanley, YOUnited States @AndyStanley

NATIONAL DUDLEY ON LIBERTY

If you only listen to one thing this year, it should be this lesson that Andy Stanley shared around July 4, 2015.

He talks about the framers and their experience in beginning our great country. He talks about their perspective of the world, the Bill of Rights (which is included in your book), and the cost of liberty.

I won’t spoil the experience of hearing it in its entirety, but as a closing thought in this great book you’ve written, I’d ask you to pause and consider your responsibility in our great country.

At DTSpade, we have a Core Value that is YET I > BUT THEY. I got it from Sarah Crossman Sullivan, and it is beautiful because it reminds me my reaction is not determined by another’s action. What you did to me does not condition my reaction to you.

But there’s another side to this. I must know who I am and what I stand for. Sherriff Jim Clark believed YET I > BUT THEY atop a horse on the Edmund Pettus bridge in Selma, Alabama on Bloody Sunday.

As the discourse in our country continues to move, stake yourself to something fixed and keep it in site. We enjoy liberty in this country, and our response to that should be an equal measure of responsibility, too.

I hope you enjoyed this book and the time you spent with it. It was a joy to give and I can’t wait to see what you can do with it.

What did you do with / get out of it?
