There is an eight foot wall around my condominium.
There is cut glass on the top of this wall.
There is barbed wire on top of this wall.
There is an electric fence on top of this wall.
There are security towers where guards with big guns keep watch.
There are more guards with big guns circling the condominium on foot.
There are locks on all my doors and windows.
And yet we have been robbed. A lot.
And we were just robbed. AGAIN. This time, he took My Man's guitar and laptop. (!!!!)
This is incredible to me. Despite all the safety measures we take, we can never be safe when we LET CROOKS IN.
We are never safe while the condominium continues to let a known thief into those gates - past the glass, wire, electric fence and big guns.
... And our own lives?
We pray. We scripture. We church. We have loving leaders. We go to the temple. We do Family Home Evening. We think we're safe.
And then knowingly let evil into our lives - through media, unclean thoughts, and allowing friends and family to sully our minds.
Don't let them in.
Only then will you be safe.
