WORLD Magazine recently published a story about a movement in Great Britain. There, police are warning homeowners to remove all chicken wire from the windows of their garden sheds.
Placed for reinforcement, there have been a number of injuries recently to burglars breaking into sheds, which are protected by chicken wire. Many of the injured have sued the property owners—and won.
I have to admit, I am a fan of personal responsibility and facing consequences for one's behavior. I think Paul was too, “7 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. 8 For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life (Gal. 6:7-8.)” ESV
