Has spring sprung in your neck of the woods yet, or are you still digging out from the snow drifts? Knowing Kansas, this week we’ll probably have a blizzard and then a tornado. Anything is possible.
I hope you’re finding this study on boundaries helpful, and I’m really enjoying the feedback you all have been posting and sending me via email. After our study last week about why need boundaries (and how we can know that boundaries are a biblical concept), I thought it might be useful to talk about what kinds of boundaries we should consider having.
A great example of a boundary that is mentioned in Scripture frequently is the Sabbath. There are a lot of competing opinions about when it should be and when it should end, etc. But the point about the Sabbath day is that it’s a time God set aside intentionally for rest. Not because He was tired, but because He wanted to set an example for us. A day not to work, a day to trust Him to provide.
That’s our memory verse for this week, but obviously boundaries extend beyond just setting a day aside to not work. There are all sorts of boundaries, mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, etc.
The trouble with setting up boundaries is that there is no hard and fast rule for when you need them. There’s no one-size-fits-all answer because each of us is different and all of our lives and relationships look different. But that’s where time with God comes in. We need to be spending time with Him so that we understand what He wants us to do and how He wants us to live.
This week, we’ll be talking about having boundaries around:
March 7 - Your time with God
March 8 - Your relationships with people
March 9 - Your possessions
March 10 - Your career
March 11 - Yourself
I’m excited to share what the Lord has been teaching me, and I am praying that it’s a blessing to each and every one of you.
All my love,
