God sets rules. Parents set rules. Government sets rules. Rules are for protection.
We set rules to protect our marriage. + Future family. We set the boundaries that we find healthy for our lives. To protect our hearts. + Relationship with God.
Some people whine about the rules. “Why this? I don’t like that. That’s not how I want it.”
Sometimes I feel guilty when people whine. I want to make peace. Give in. Compromise our protection.
But God reminds me…
Rules are necessary. Rules are healthy. Rules are essential. Protecting your heart. Marriage. + Family… Is nothing to feel guilty about.
