I was clicking through the stations last week and came across a documentary on a women’s prison. A guard explained how the visitors for their own safety needed to stay on the gray painted lines. The inmates could not reach them if they stayed on the gray painted lines. Catch this, staying on the gray paint for for the visitor own good.

This is what God has done for us. He has drawn for us guidelines to live by, for our own good. Guidelines like, don’t lie, don’t steal, don’t kill, don’t commit adultery, don’t have other God’s before me

When we cross these guidelines we hurt, either, God, ourselves, others. You can not cross these lines with out hurting someone.
