I came across this article and thought I share it.


Marriage & Family by Lisa Maki

I have lost count of how many Christians I have met and talked to who have no clue about boundaries when it comes to man-woman relationship. Honestly, I was one of them. Charge it to ignorance, carefree attitude, or too trusting nature.
Proverbs 3:21 says: DO NOT LOSE SIGHT OF COMMON SENSE. It seems that the world has more common sense than we do in this area.
So if you are single, do not be caught alone with a married opposite gender. Do not even attempt to seek counsel from the opposite sex, which is what happens all the time. In fact, I have had men come to me for counsel and when I passed them on to my husband, they didn't even want to talk to him. There have been women too who came to my husband for counsel and when he passed them on to me, didn't even want to have anything to do with me. You see how exposing that is?
Titus 2 instructs older women to teach younger women to be self-controlled, chaste, homemakers, good-natured, and subordinating themselves to their husbands, that the Word of God may not be exposed to reproach. This should be the rule and should apply to social networking as well.
I am 45 years old, as of the time of writing this article. This makes me older than the 20 and 30 year olds, which gives me the authority to instruct with regards to what Titus 2 entails. Yet over and above my age is my personal learning experience that I just shared with you. Don’t let this happen again.

Don’t be ignorant. Be wise as serpents and innocent as doves.
