ReActions Speak Louder than Words
Jesus viewed being mistreated as an opportunity to react in a way that caught people off guard. He reflected our Father in heaven by responding like our Father in heaven.
We need personal guardrails so we don’t stray into areas of life that can harm us or the people we love. If there’s one area in which personal guardrails are most needed but also most resisted, it’s in our relationships. Let's talk about setting up guardrails to protect you from an area that is often loaded with regrets - Sexuality.
Have you ever met someone that later you wish you’d never met? Is there a person you wish your husband, wife, son, or daughter had never met? Sometimes people are our greatest regrets because they influence us to ignore our guardrails and step into the danger zone.
Guardrails are designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas. They minimize damage by keeping us in the safety zone. But the highway isn’t the only place we need guardrails. Stepping away from what has the potential to harm you is stepping in the direction of the One who loves you. God isn’t trying to keep you away from something; he is drawing you toward someone—himself.
