What is a Freemason's duty?
what is a Freemasons duty?
Note from Tim:
When I first came across this question I started to give it a pass. It seemed too brief and so simple a question. But then I remembered, no one speaks for Freemasonry; we all interpret things in different ways, and no two people think exactly the same. I began to examine my own perspective on my duties as a Freemason and wondered how it might differ from the perspective of others.
Are our duties contained within the Charges we receive with each degree? Is our duty fulfilled by earnestly striving, even unsuccessfully, to live our lives according to the moral obligations we take upon ourselves as Freemasons? Is it more complicated than that? Can the duties of a Freemason be enumerated? Delineated? Should they be? Can they be properly communicated, or can they only be experienced by the heart and consciousness like true Masonic secrets?
I'm interested in your perspective on the duties of a Freemason.
