Narrow-Minded or Wise

Today's Scripture

- Psalm 111:10 NIV.

Thoughts for Today

We set boundaries for our children. Don't touch the hot stove. … Don't run into the street. … Show respect to other people. We set these boundaries beause we love them and want those things we know are best for them.

As we've been discussing this week, God in his love has set boundaries for us, his children. He is our Creator, our Father, and knows what is best for us.Walking in obedience and staying within his boundaries is the wisest way we can live.

The Bible teaches us about God's boundaries. Our culture says that if we believe in these boundaries, we are narrow-minded. But the Bibe says that if we choose to live within the boundaries, we will please God, enourage others and receive God's blessing. The Bible says that living within God's boundaries brings us security. This doesn't mean we won't have problems, but it does mean God will help us through whatever we face.

Consider this …

Contrary to popular opinion, walking within God's boundaries is the smartest thing we can do. Have you found yourself trying to stay so open-minded and politically correct that you have strayed outside some of those boundaries?

Prayer : Our Loving Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me boundaries that guide me into right decisions and keep me safe. Forgive me for the times I have been swayed by popular opinion and chosen my own way—or the popular way—instead of your way. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
