In this wonderful sermon, Andy Stanley of Northpoint Community Church teaches on “Guardrails” and how they can apply to our friendships. Guardrails are “a system designed to keep something from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas.” Guardrails create a small accident to protect you from a larger incident. We rarely pay attention to or think about guardrails until we need them. When we need or use them, they can save our lives.
Applied to our lives, spirituality and relationships, guardrails can help guide and protect us. In this context, Andy redefines guardrails as “a standard of behavior that becomes a matter of conscience”. Most likely our biggest mistakes in life could have been avoided if we had guardrails steering us in the right direction.
