Guardrails – “Direct and Protect” – 4/8/18

Speaker: Grant Agler

GUARDRAILS

A system designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas

Bridges | Medians | Curves

Direct and Protect

Designed to minimize damage.

The highway isn’t the only place we need guardrails.

Culture doesn’t encourage guardrails | Culture is content with painted lines

Billy Graham Rule

Harvard Business Review
“So what’s an evolved male leader to do? In the simplest terms, become what we call a thoughtful caveman. Healthy, mature, self-aware men understand and accept their distinctly male neural architecture.”

Ephesians 5:15-17 (NIV)
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.

One thing leads to another.

Ephesians 5:18 (NIV)
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to…

If more than one person has told you you drink too much… you do.

Ephesians 5:18 (NIV)
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery.

Guardrails safeguard us from handing over control of our lives to someone or something else.

Ephesians 5:18 (NIV)
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.

Defensive living

Stepping away from what can harm you is a step toward the One who loves you.
