Abstract

It's important to know where our responsibility ends and someone else's begins. In short, it's important to identify the boundaries in our lives. We experience an amazing amount of freedom and fruitfulness when we faithfully serve within our appropriate boundaries. When we go outside of our boundaries, by definition we encroach on others' territory. We trespass. We rob others of the opportunity for faithfulness by doing what they were meant to do. And we also abdicate our own roles, thus neglecting our own stewardships. Have you identified your roles? Do you stay within your own boundaries? Do you respect others' boundaries? Doing more than we're asked to do (by crossing boundaries) doesn't earn us bonus point; rather, it reduces our effectiveness and undermines the contributions of others.
