Stay Within The Boundary

Do you ever wonder why not a year goes by without a natural disaster causing chaos somewhere in the world? Calamities such as hurricanes, thypoon (Philippines), tsunamis, flashfloods destroy lives, homes and livelihoods.
.
No one can argue that the seas have a crash across the coastline. In fact, people agree that disaster occurs whenever the sea breaches the shoreline. God Himself has "placed the sand as the boundary of the sea".
.
It is the same thing with man, God also established boundaries for human behavior. Yet not a day goes by without countless violations of His commands. Amazingly, we often argue that we have the "right" to violate these boundaries.
.
We fail to realized that disregarding God's order leads to disorder. Within creation there is inherent order, violating it resulted inherent consequences. God in His kindness simply and lovingly communicated to us the order of things so that we can avoid His prescribed boundaries.
