A Thought: Barriers.
This is a picture of the fence Tony built off our gate a couple of years ago. Its function is to keep all kinds of predators off our property. Constructed with additional barbed wire, it works. Each day we construct barriers with our facial expressions, words, and/or actions which say, ” Stay away.” Perhaps, if something or someone appears threatening, that is appropriate. But most of the time, we just need to ‘check’ ourselves as to the message we are sending. Jesus taught us to ‘invite.’ “Come, follow me.” “Come, you who are heavy-laden and I will give you rest.”
Today, may you be aware of how open you are to others and life, in general. Blessings!
Mt.4:19 “Come, and I will make you fishers of men.”
