Last week I wrote about building houses and the way in which foundations are not seen but yet are vital to a stable construction.
The walls are an interesting part as well. Their purpose is to keep what’s important in, and to keep what’s not out. They form a protection around us, a safety guard, a border and a barrier. They keep enquiring eyes out and harmful things at arm’s length. They keep the heat or the cold in and provide protection from the elements. It’s not much of a house without walls!
Our faith needs to have walls as well. There are some things that need to be kept out of our lives and some things that need to be kept in. We must construct spiritual walls that provide protection for our faith and that of our families. I wonder if you have ever thought about what your spiritual walls are?
