We talk a lot about boundaries, but most of us live without knowing how to set or maintain boundaries. Boundaries are like fences around our house, with a gate to let those in that we want close to us. We decide who is safe and with whom we can trust our lives, and likewise learn who is not trustworthy and must not be allowed into our emotional world. You are responsible for yourself, since it is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Are you caring for yourself? Do you manage your time, talents and treasures in a way pleasing to God? If not, make changes and notice how you feel healthier.
