Restrictions:

"You are not restricted by us,
but you are restricted by your own affections."
2 Corinthians 6:12

It is not man's laws or ordinances that hinder me, but rather myself.

My affection for temporary things.
My desire for man's approval.
My love for vain fancies.

These are the things that keep me from bearing more fruit.
These are the things things that keep me from growing closer to Jesus Christ.
These are the things I must rid my life of.

"Examine me, O Lord, and prove me;
Try my mind and my heart." Psalms 26:2
