It was a breezy, cool morning,
but a beauuuuuutiful day
in Sandersville, GA!
The marker reads,
Historic Sandersville National Register.
General Sherman's walk made us "historical."
I took a walk around the block.
I love the old homes around our small town.
Most of the older homes have a few things in common...
1. A Front Porch
2. One of more rockers
3. Two or more urns
4. A fence
Some fancier than others.
( A fence is about as close as we get to a gated community)
What's the purpose of a fence?
1. To protect what's in
( The sweet kiddos and
the sweet little cottage in the back)
2. To keep others out
And I got to thinking...
Isn't this just like us?
We construct fences around our hearts...
to protect ourselves from the pain
of offense or rejection.
We build walls where there should be none.
We dig our fence posts deep,
we mark our boundary lines
and dare anyone to cross them.
(God help me!)
"But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away
have been brought near through the blood of Christ.
(That's ME, yippee!)
For he himself is our peace who has made the two one
and has destroyed the barrier,
the dividing wall of hostility...
You are no longer foreigners and aliens,
but fellow citizens with God's people
and members of God's household,
built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets
with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone."
(No fence necessary)
Ephesians 2:13-14a, 19-20
TEAR DOWN THAT WALL!
