{Like} a city broken into {and} left without a wall,
{so} is a person who lacks self-control.
Prov 25:28 (GW)

Today's youth are surrounded by a vast wasteland of open spaces with no fences or boundaries. Our society has been trying to remove all barriers to one's "self awareness" and "self expression" that we have rendered our children lost in a maze of choices. Each choice is held as equal to the other, none holding any merit as a better choice because having the right to choose is more important than choosing right.

We would never send a toddler out in the deep forest without a guide yet we are leaving our young people wander around in this vast wasteland of open borders with no boundaries.

The current influx of illegal immigration has awaken me from the slumber of live and let live to a more thoughtful and purposeful train of reasoning.

If anyone can do whatever they want to do whenever they want to do it wherever they desire to do it then we as a society have lost our moorings and like a ship without a rudder we are adrift on life's seas.

One must have an anchor point, a boundary, a place where there is no trespassing allowed. But as with the first humans that have ever graced this planet we too have been overtaken in our lawlessness from our unbridled greed and lust for more.

When there is no one to say no then we never learn the value of restraint. We never learn to appreciate that which does not belong to us. We never learn to appreciate the need to ask before taking or respecting the limits set by others.

A casual observer may scratch their collective heads wondering what in the world we are thinking or which course of action we choose to be the right course. In our day of relativeness and no absolutes than anything anyone wants to do is acceptable as long as they can justify their actions with themselves.

Rules like 'thou shalt not covet' or 'thou shalt not steal' are completely ignored because we reason if we can acquire it then it belongs to us.

Crashing the borders to get to where we want to be without regard to the occupants of that said place is just plan selfish and self serving.

A society nor a people can long survive if they do not limit themselves from their shameful lust for more and coveting what others have. We need to learn to be thankful for what we have and thank God for his provision.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
