    " NO TRESPASSING"

    Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
    Lest strangers be filled with thy wealth, and thy labours be in the house of a stranger.
    PROVERBS 5:7,10

    The sign nailed on the tree said "No Trespassing." The red letters stood out for yards in every direction. But that didn't stop the young boys from climbing the fence in order to reach the apples that grew on the trees on the other side. One day a small boy slipped while he was climbing the apple tree, and he fell onto a pile of sharp branches, cutting himself badly and breaking his ankle. Alone and afraid, the young boy lay crying for hours amidst the tumble of sticks. Finally, the owner of the property happened by. He came out and lifted the boy from the branches. The child was afraid of the wrath of the farmer who had posted such ominous signs, but the old gentleman merely smiled at the boy and said. "I didn't put the signs up to be mean. I put them there to try to keep things like this from happening. It was kindness which caused me to want to protect little boys just like you."

    Our loving, Heavenly Father gives us rules for the same reason. He is hoping to save us from pain and suffering, When we ignore His guidance, we find ourselves in terrible situations. We can feel confident that God is trying to protect us by His rules. He protects us from strangers who would prey on us and strangers who might mistreat us.

    Dear Heavenly Father, Help us to accept the rules You have given us. Guide us that we might always avoid the snares of strangers and the dangers in life. Amen and Amen.

    Blessings to all, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_20v.gif' border=0></a>
