Here's one paragraph, plus a little more, on 'Freedom.'
In the 2009 movie Old Dogs, Dan Rayburn—played by Robin Williams—engages in a night of wild abandon in an attempt to recover from his recent divorce. He wakes up the following morning with the word ‘Freemont’ tattooed across his chest. “It was supposed to say Freedom,” explained Dan’s best friend Charlie, played by John Travolta. For the rest of his life, Dan will have to explain how an unfortunate language barrier resulted in the tattoo Freemont branded across his chest instead of the word Freedom.
This scene threw me into a fit of laughter because it reminded me of the many times I’ve tried to gain freedom through mere human effort. Then, I grew somber, as I thought of a passage:
When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now ashamed of? ~Romans 6:20-21
[Here, I would add two personal examples showing the human struggle with freedom. And I would end with the argument: only when bound in the mind of Christ, encased in the love of Him, can we be truly free. And, if I was clever enough I would bundle that argument within the conclusion with the beginning anecdote].
