La Biblia está llena de versículos que nos advierten que si caminamos de determinada manera o en determinada dirección, tal cosa sucederá, y si caminamos de esta otra manera, esto otro sucederá. Cuando ponemos límites, debemos asumir la responsabilidad de nuestras elecciones, y hacerlas valer. Tú sabrás cuando estés cruzando los límites que te fijaste, o los de otra persona.

Lo único que quiere es satisfacer ese deseo que se ha encendido dentro suyo. , sólo para conseguir lo que quiere en ese momento. Por eso, y con esto vuelvo a hablarle a los muchachos, hace más de dos mil años el Apóstol Pablo dijo que bueno le sería al hombre no tocar mujer, no encender un fuego.
