Fire Inside!

While in south africa I read a story about a young man who burned to death in his shack. His friend burned himself trying to get in to save him. But he couldn't get in because he couldn't break open the door with the lock that the man had bought to keep himself safe in his shack. This was so poignant and reminded me of how sometimes we barricade ourselves off emotionally to protect ourselves from getting hurt. And sometimes that protection becomes a barrier that threatens our life. We become our own jailers and no one can get in without some singeing.
