As spring approaches, so does the urge to get outside and tool around in the yard. Except, now I’m in a place where they take care of everything, so there’s not much to do. So I got the bright idea that I would add some new landscaping and do a little designing. There is a list of plants the association will approve and the plan has to be submitted to a committee. There is good reason, the community has a design standard and they want to maintain a consistency and keep out any invasive species of plants that could take over and destroy the posh look. Does this scenario sound familiar? It should, because God also has a design standard for your life. Though everything is permissible, not everything is beneficial. That’s why we have this amazing book as our guide to help us weed out the bad and keep the good. It helps us keep our “yard” manicured to perfection.
"All things are lawful," but not all things are helpful. "All things are lawful," but not all things build up. Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. 1 Corinthians 10:23-24
