Never take down a fence until you know why it was put up. (Warren Wiersbe, pastor, author)

This is one of Wiersbe’s lessons for life, and it may be helpful to learn. Fences are a kind of boundary; they may say “Stay out” or “Stay in.” They may be there to protect those inside from dangers coming from the outside. Or, they may be there to keep those inside from going out into dangerous places. Before you go in or go out, be sure to find out why the fence is there.

We’re sticking to the limits of what God has set for us. . . . As your lives grow in faith, you’ll play a part within our expanding work. And we’ll all still be within the limits God sets. ( 2 Corinthians 10:13-15)
