Do you think through the exercise of our free will we are either becoming God's friend or enemy?


Through the exercise of our free will in the little choices we make, we are either helping God and growing in spiritual maturity, or we are inhibiting that trajectory and stunting our spiritual growth. As Jesus put it: The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones. (Luke 16:10) It seems that small battles prepare us for larger battles; or does it? Giving example, do you think this is a true "train of thought"?

    Well said, Mothersofnations! I have contemplated that sometimes, as our Free Will becomes less tarnished in His eyes He could elect to use us on occasion, thus stripping us temporarily of our free will to actually directly use us for His purpose...
