Some thoughts:

1. Assuming continued good health with no effort on our part
2. Assuming we will live a long number of years
3. Assuming that we have "plenty of time" to make a decision for Christ
4. Taking no note or thought of God's role in human affairs, and assuming that human actions alone determine events and outcomes (including our own material welfare)
5. Assuming that this life and world are the "be-all and end-all" of existence, with no consideration of eternity 
6. Even if we are already Christians, assuming with no sense of urgency that we have ample time to share Christ with others, and to reflect God's love (as well as the love that we ourselves should have) for others in our words and actions toward them
7. Assuming that our legacy (such as the distribution of our resources) will work itself out according to our wishes with no action on our part

In my humble opinion FREEDOM is the number one item taken for granted for so long by many having never lifted a finger for it in this land. 

Not the squishy freedom of subjugation granted by earthly bureaucratic Mandarins. But the true INALIENABLE FREEDOM bequeathed by the MASTER. And successfully defended by the countless patriots from the time of Lexington Green until early 2020. 

Those patriots would not have been kept from their church by any leftist governmental soft hand types without a fight and much blood shed. (Galatians 4:16)

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of it's victims may be the most oppressive." ~C.S. Lewis

In the Lord's FREEDOM...warrior on
