One thing that make people fall and fail drastically is the fact that they go beyond their boundaries.
I have examined and re-examined many great men who fell mightily, and what led to their fall was that: they went beyond their boundaries.
Adam and Eve failed because they crossed their boundary! They wanted to be like God.
Lucifer was sent down from Heaven because he crossed his boundary.
There’s that natural ego in people that comes after a sense of fulfilment of achievement that tempts them to go beyond their scope.
That was what happened to King Uzziah in II Chronicles 26:16
“But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the Lord his God, and entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense.”
Did you just read that? Uzziah already had everything! So he thought to himself: what else have I not done or tried?
81 courageous priests came to warn him but he didn’t listen until he was disgraced with leprosy.
Behind your boundaries lies disgrace and embarrassment.
We should learn to stay within our scope of influence. We should learn to maintain and live within our boundaries.
