Setting Emotional Boundaries
- 2014 6 Feb
We’ve all heard about erecting fences and other boundaries to protect what is rightfully ours to protect. But, what about emotional boundaries? Are you able to walk in such a way so as to keep yourself out of danger, and also ensure that others don’t bring danger into your life? Scripture teaches us more about this area of our life: “For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say ‘no’ to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this age” (Titus 2:11-12). Do you know where you need to say ‘no’ and where to say ‘yes’ in order to live a self-controlled life?
