We don’t like boundaries. But boundaries are essential. If we are to stay on a road, succeed in a relationship or overcome the seduction of wealth, boundaries are the key. Just as a fence or a guardrail can be the difference between life and death, staying within the bounds of wealth is key to our spiritual survival.
Our hearts are fickle. Our perspective is strong one moment. Our conviction abounds after we hear a message. Materialism seems ridiculous most of the time. Wealth is described as a trap (1 Timothy 6) for a reason. It is waiting for us to let our guard down. Boundaries are fail safes that work independently of mood. They are the tangible expression of our newfound perspective and conviction. In these articles you will learn practical ways to build boundaries that are not meant to constrain you. Rather, these boundaries are to keep sin out, therefore leading to us to true freedom.
