A CHAIN CAN BIND, HOLD, OR BE DECORATIVE.
THERE ARE CHAINS IN LIFE,
SOME FROM WHICH WE NEED
TO FREE OURSELVES.
There are times in our lives when chains might or need to be broken:
Chains of servitude: slavery of any type is immoral
Of abuse and neglect: there is no excuse for either
Poverty: we are all responsible to help those in need
Illness: more research needed & sharing of medical
Addiction: AA, NA, Al-Anon, and many more to help
Some chains have weak or missing links:
Family: relationship between child & parent
Friends: is there trust & honesty
Professions, Jobs: is there integrity & respect
Locks might hold some chains together:
Can be locks of love: unconditional love is a must
Tradition: family, religious, cultural
Or control/power: this is a lock that must be broken
There are chains of gold or silver:
Keep riches in: greed is not acceptable
For jewelry: if done with love, not pomposity
And others made of steel:
Can be broken: must allow freedom
Emotions: unhealthy to hold onto fear, resentment, etc
If we answer yes to any of these questions, we need to seek freedom by breaking the chains that are holding us back from a free, healthy, and fulfilling life.
