There are a lot of people who think that Scriptures’ warnings and commands are restrictive, hampering our freedom. We want to be free to do whatever feels best to us.
But as a loving father, God builds boundaries to protect us. In my book The Purity Principle, I write about how God’s guardrails are His moral laws. They stand between us and destruction. They are there not to punish or deprive us, but to protect us. And if we stay within the boundaries He has put up for us, we experience not frustration, but joy. Not bondage, but freedom.
A smart traveler doesn’t curse guardrails. He doesn’t whine, “That guardrail dented my fender!” He looks over the cliff, sees demolished autos, and thanks God for guardrails.
