Setting Traps

Well, we’ve come to call our good friend, Kevin, who lives in Kansas City, the ‘Squirrel Trapper”.

Yes we have, because he has become obsessed with getting his squirrels away from his new roof, and he’s trapping them.

Yeah, and he’s pretty humane about it. He takes them to another location and releases them. He just doesn’t want them damaging his roof. In the same way, it’s not a bad thought to think about the traps we need to set around our own house of love to protect it.

Yeah, sometimes the things that can creep in and damage it, like bitterness or resentment or even self-pity. I can be guilt of that sometimes.

Friend, think about this in your own relationship. It makes for a good conversation. What traps do you need to set around your house of love?
