As we conclude this series, I want us to look at having restrictions and their importance.
The thing which mainly separates the great from the least is principles and restrictions. Yes, many who are great go to clubs, drink and fornicate but the difference between them and the rest is that their principles restrict them from doing such things on certain times.
But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.( Daniel 1:8)
In this life you can’t just do everything and go everywhere. You need to have restrictions and principles. You need to have limits in your life even if you don’t do anything bad or evil. I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?( Job 31:1)
It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.( Proverbs 10:23)
It’s only fools who are open to the idea of doing anything and everything because the great and wise know that part of the price they pay is having restrictions. Musicians don’t drink certain drinks when they are going to perform, athletes don’t eat or do certain things before they compete.
You don’t just do everything you feel like doing, you need to place restrictions in your life because even God has placed some on Himself.
Thank you for following this series and I believe you have been blessed. A book based on this series will be released later this year because as I was writing this series I noticed that my two to five minutes blog post rule restricts me from sharing much with you, hence I am compiling this series into a book. Feel free to share this teaching to anyone and God bless you.
