Proverbs 22:28 – Respecting Boundaries Set By Our Elders

Here on earth, land is finite, they are not making anymore of it, and there is a competition for one to get their hands on real estate; which ties into today’s Proverb:

Pro 22:28  Don’t cheat your neighbor by moving the ancient boundary markers set up by previous generations.

Back in the day, people would move markers at night when no one was watching to increase their own lands, which today’s verse tells us is a major no-no.

Now with google earth and land appraisers and courts, that is a little more difficult than sneaking around moving rocks at night, but even still, today people use lawyers and inheritances and estate courts to try and take what doesn’t necessarily belong to them.  Therefore our verse, should be cautionary today just as it was when was written all those centuries ago; God’s Word tells us to respect the property boundaries set up by the generations that came before us, a court may get it wrong, but God’s Word is always right.
