Rules are an essential part of life. They tell us:
how fast to drive, what time to put your children to bed, how many calories to eat, how much money to pay in taxes, what is acceptable behavior at school, what time to arrive at work, how to participate in sporting events, what not to do at the swimming pool, many more things to numerous to count.
There is just one problem with rules. They lack the power to draw you and your children closer to Christ and to stop the flesh from self indulgence! Satan has devised a strategy so hideous that it makes parents think they are following Christ when they are really following his plan for spiritual destruction.
