fence1James MacDonald has a good post on building moral fences for men in ministry, or in general.

I can sympathize with most of these fences because I tried to do all of them right from the start of ministry. I got strange looks and people thought I was over doing it. But I appreciate and agree with his statement,

“It has left me deeply persuaded that, “there but for the grace of God, (and some moral fences) go I.”  I know myself too well.  Lengthy, unaccountable hours with manifold temptations available and affordable is a recipe for failure.  Romans 13:14 instructs us that we are to “make no provision for the flesh.”  You think I sound weak?  I am! And when I forget that weakness I cease to know God’s strength.”
