There is a fable of a kite which once said to itself, “If I could just get rid

of that man who is holding me back, then I could fly above the clouds and kiss the stars.” One day the string broke. Now, at last, the kite was free to soar higher than it had ever gone before. But much to its surprise it did not rise above its present height. In fact, it came crashing down to the ground. The kite had not realized a fact of aerodynamics: the string holding a kite down is the string holding it up. A kite can fly above the clouds only when the man on earth is in full control. God’s laws, his apparent restrictions, not only hold us down and in check, but also hold us up. They make us free to live in the higher altitudes of God’s will and blessings.
