For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who observe it begin to ridicule him, saying, “This man began to build and was not able to finish.” (LUKE 14:28-30, NASB)
Good boundaries help us finish the course. They clarify our convictions. They provide us with clear moral directions by assigning a healthy, predetermined path as situations arise. They draw the florescent lines that we will not cross because of our love for Christ and our desire to see His plan realized in all areas of our lives.
