A Challenge to Rule Yourself
Proverbs 25:28 KJV He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
- INTRODUCTION - DISCIPLINE
-The man who rules his spirit is a man who is disciplined. In fact, he is a man who has reached the highest aspect of the Fruit of the Spirit. If you look at the listing of the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:22-23, it would appear that there is an escalating order there. Temperance or self-control is the last one that is mentioned but one that should gain high priority in our lives.
Elbert Hubbard - Self-discipline is the ability to do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.
