The Ten Laws of Boundaries

boundariesMy friend Eric sent me a link that I found extremely helpful and I thought I would pass it along. It is a summary of the principles in the book Boundaries by Cloud and Townsend. It was something I really needed to hear and I thought some of you guys might benefit from this. In ministry it is hard to find a balance between being caring and taking on other people’s responsibilities and decisions for them. If we aren’t careful we end up enabling people and develop co-dependency among those we minister to. If you find yourself there from time to time, have a read and see if this article doesn’t help you see your situation for what it really is so that you can deal with it.

  1. Very good stuff.
    It is easier for my wife to see me cross boundaries than myself. I need good, loving honest people around me who serve as an accurate mirror. God often uses them to speak to me. I like it. I hate it. I grow in it… to be more like Jesus.

    Law #5 about motivation is quite an eye opener for me – and definitely needs more time to chew on and work on.
    Sometimes when reading the beattitudes the one that hits me hardest is that ‘pure in heart’ one probably because I often do things to please others or gain their respect which per this comment is not the pure motive. It’s so easy to do unconsciously so now I will make a bigger effort to note before I react or act to something.
    Thanks for posting this link!
