With a pen and paper in hand, Zack and I sat down to write out a list of physical boundaries we wouldn’t cross.
Our relationship had recently shifted from being “just friends” to officially dating.
Less time for oral history means less time for legends to develop, and this points to a more reliable gospel message.
If I could go back in time and give my younger self some advice, this is what I would say: Don’t pursue boundaries without pursuing a genuine relationship with Christ.
Ask Christ to give you a humble heart and genuine desire to honor Him in the relationship.
Once we are passionately worshiping Christ, humbly pursuing purity, and intentionally living a set-apart life for God’s glory, then we will be ready for a boundary list.
Until then, the boundaries will only become legalistic rules to be followed.
