I believe boundaries are extremely necessary, but accountability is more vital and paramount. A boundary with no one else to keep you in check is just an empty marker. Accountability is really the vital piece. David seeing Bathsheba from his rooftop was less about a boundary and more about accountability- He wasn’t supposed to be home, he was supposed to be at war.

I agree with everything you have shared, but if we are just left to our internal moral compasses, we will fall. Gathering men about us, for men, that have unfettered access to our lives to keep us inside the boundaries will ensure the boundaries don’t get moved.

Love you Phil
