People who cannot control themselves are like cities without walls to protect them. Proverbs 25:28 (ERV)
Imagine living in a house with no doors. People could come in and leave as they please. They could stay as long as they wanted and take whatever they wanted. It would leave you without any protection at all. You would never intentionally want to live like that for an extended period. Living a life without being willing to tell someone “no” is similar to living in a house with no doors. When you always say “yes,” others have greater control of your life. Saying “no” helps to set boundaries in life.
Spend time today looking at your boundaries. Are there areas where you need to say “no” to others? Take the step to start building walls of protection in your life.
