Today we placed a fence around our garden. My peas, tomatoes, and basil are being eaten like crazy! Now the rabbits and whatever is eating my garden will be forever shut out. Now my garden will grow without hindrance.
This is one of those moments where I remember back to some very good friends in high school and college that helped me stay away from outsiders could have hindered my faith. At the right time and the right place, God placed some good people in my presence kept me in line.
I do not advocate never talking to unbelievers or those who are lackluster, but we all must have people to encourage us in the Christian faith to remind us of Christ when tough things occur!
