Delightful quote I saw on someone's facebook profile:
G.K. Chesterton once quipped that before you remove any fence always first ask why it was put there in the first place. You see, every boundary set by God points to something worth protecting, and if you are to protect the wonder of existence, God's instruction book is the place to turn. Anyone who thinks that he or she can place the boundaries arbitrarily will either destroy the enchantment of life or wear himself into exhaustion. God's commands are there to protect what life is truly about, not the other way around. Implementing that truth in our lives keeps us from losing the wonder. ~Ravi Zacharias


  1. Beautiful. I'm a bit of a rebel and decided non-comformist - but I'm also a tad OCD, which means I thrive on straight lines and neat boxes. I may not like other people fencing me in, but I appreciate and trust in the fences that God has set up in my life.
