If you have ever released cows into a new pasture, the result is always the same - they munch on the new delicacies for awhile and then it begins - a steady march to explore the fence line. No matter how large the pasture, the cows set out to walk the boundaries of their enclosure and if a fence is down or there is a gap
you can be sure that is the first place they will discover! We humans are no different. Something about limits
hurts our pride - why can’t I go there? why can’t I do that? However, like the good farmer, God has placed those boundaries for our protection, he knows what lurks beyond the fence line that will lead to our distress and destruction.
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord god as he walked in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the Lord god among the trees of the garden. Genesis 3:8
