    Where the spirit of Jehovah is, there is freedom.

    2 Cor. 3:17.

    Young ones, Jehovah loves freedom, and he put that love in your heart. At the same time, however, he wants you to use your freedom responsibly, which is a protection for you.

    Perhaps you know others who view pornography or who engage in sexual immorality, high-risk sports, or drug and alcohol abuse. To be sure, they may enjoy a few moments of excitement or pleasure.

    But often that comes at great cost, perhaps in the form of disease, addiction, or even death. (Gal. 6:7, 8) Yes, their “freedom” is a cruel self-deception. (Titus 3:3) By comparison, how many people do you know who became sick because they adhered to Bible standards?

    Clearly, obedience to Jehovah is both healthful and liberating. (Ps. 19:7-11) What is more, when you use your freedom wisely—that is, within the bounds of God’s perfect laws and principles—you show God, as well as your parents, that you can be trusted with more freedom.—Rom. 8:21.
