"For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters.  But do not use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh; rather serve one another through love."    GALATIANS 5:13  We like to celebrate the fact that we are free to "live the good life."  But Jesus calls us to a different kind of freedom.  St. Paul reminds us that Jesus sets us free so that we can serve one another, share our gifts and promote God's work here on earth to glorify His name and not honor ourselves.
