Day 265: Know Your Boundaries


Proverbs 22:28

Don’t cheat your neighbor by moving the ancient boundary markers set up by previous generations.


We must honor those who established and defined the boundaries.

This precept establishes a code of honor regarding those who pioneered new ground – generations who paved the way for us and laid down boundaries. There is much more to this precept than meets the eye. It is amazingly arrogant for a young and zealous generation to disregard previous generations.

This principle doesn’t elevate tradition over progress; however, it does establish a cautious pause for us from acting willy-nilly on established boundaries.

Take the current agenda for those who want to redefine marriage – replacing a time tested and biblically mandated union between a male and female. Move this ancient boundary stone the value of marriage will be lost – the destruction of society will follow close at hand. Moving the stone of marriage isn’t progress – it is a degradation.

When I was raising my children, I established boundaries that protected them from the dangers outside of my protection. If their behavior or decision got close to those boundaries, I would pull them back. This action communicated that I love them and will protect them by keeping an eye where their behavior would lead them.


Boundaries actually demonstrate our love and protection for those generations that follow us. Share on X
