Boundaries help us all to take responsibility for our own individual lives and choices, and allow others to live their own lives and make their own choices. When we set clear and healthy boundaries, we avoid unnecessary pain, stress, misunderstandings, and a life subject to the control or desire of others.
Boundaries allow all individuals to develop and express their own identity, and have the room to freely grow and thrive. We show respect, humility and love for each other when we respect other people’s personal boundaries, whether they are old or young. We should embrace and respect boundaries, including when God sets boundaries for us (in love, and for our own good).
Healthy boundaries protect us from spiritual, physical, mental and emotional harm by limiting harmful behaviors… damage that can sometimes take just a few minutes to occur, but years and years to recover from. When we respect people’s boundaries, we show self control, and avoid hurting them unknowingly as well.
Personal Boundaries define our identity, and are absolutely essential for healthy and successful relationships. Setting and respecting boundaries is crucial for every kind of relationship ~ friendship, dating, marriage, parenting, family, work, ministry and otherwise. It is also important to set boundaries to avoid burnout. Please read Inspiring Bible Verses about Boundaries below, and be blessed.
