Never take down a fence until you know why it was put up. (Warren Wiersbe, author)
“Don’t fence me in” are the repeated words of an old cowboy song. Some people don’t like to be fenced in, to have boundaries or limits imposed by others. However, before we rebel against those fences, it would be wise to discover why they have been placed where they are. The rules we chafe at may have good reason to be there to protect us from harm and danger.
Do not move an ancient boundary stone set up by your ancestors (Proverbs 22:28).
