This title examines boundaries from a biblical perspective. The authors, who define boundaries as the imaginary "lines" that exist between the limits of our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual duties, discuss how these boundaries have broken down and offer a routine for creating and maintaining healthy limits in relation to God and fellow human beings.
Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not. Boundaries impact all areas of our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us, mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts, emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and spiritual boundarieshelp us to distinguish God's will from our own.
