Building a Fence

I am building a fence right now. The fence is not just for privacy, it is for safety, too. The fence is meant to keep my kids and dog safely within the yard. It will also deter the wrong type of person from getting in my yard. Building a fence takes a lot of time, energy, and resources, but it is worth it. Why? My children are worth it. I wonder, are we setting up a fence around our children in other ways? Are we protecting them from the wrong kinds of videos, shows, music, etc.? They are much more likely to be harmed like this than playing in the backyard. Intruders, and the enemy, are after our families every waking moment. What are we doing to protect them? At the least, we must pray. We also must use wisdom and discernment in what are children are exposed to. Shouldn’t we set up a fence around our hearts, too? It takes a lot of time, energy, and resources. But, it’s worth it.

  1. Very thought provoking, Jason! There is so much in this world of evil to protect our children from! Now Stan and I have great-grandchildren to pray for and help protect! God bless you and your family!


  2. And yet so much of the world tells us to tear down fences. The rationale includes fences divide, hinder, exclude. Isaiah 26:1 ESV
    In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: “We have a strong city; he sets up salvation as walls and bulwarks.” It just might be that each fence has a locked gate which allows selective entry. Thanx Jason
