Some things may seem nice to do but the same things may be a challenge to your next lesson. Self control wins the race of life for us when we have it because "The first and the best victory is to conquer yourself." Plato. But Indiscipline breeds losses, confusion and disgrace, like Aristotle say "What it lies in our power to do also lies in our power not to do."Cain lost control of his anger and ended up in the land of curses.Samson lacked self control and ended up in losing his honor and oil.David lacked discipline and ended up losing his throne and dignity for a season. Solomon lost self control over women and ended up with a divided kingdom. Gehazi lost control over his financial appetite and lost his future, glory and health.
Judas could not control his spirit and ended up committing suicide.
"Have you seen a student who wants to move up to the next class, and refuses to write the promotional exam? (Get Discipline) Because challenges are like exams that makes you get to the next class; taking off means you don't want to get promoted " Pst. Chris… but the worth of our lives comes not in what we do or whom we know but as someone special by what you define yourself as and who you want to belong to the Maker or the Breaker? “So Life without challenges is like a school without classes, you won't learn any lessons” so what do you do when you're faced with all those problems that may seem to crumble you? (Try This! Crumbled a $100.00 bill, and check if it changes it value, does it? No, it doesn't) ...So Get Disciplined! You've got control over your life; show those problems you can kick them off, don't go looking for the next exit, don’t do nothing and let fear take over you, embrace yourself and pass the examination for you are worth your value because with discipline there's success, glory and excellence.
Be submissive to the authority; learn to obey rules at school, at home, in church, neighborhood, country and the world as a whole. Remember that what is wrong is wrong and that which is right, Is. Don't compromise anything. Obey your parents and "Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you." Hebrews 13:17.
See You don't have to keep up with masturbation, with pornography, you don't have to hide behind sex, you don't have to take your life, stop cutting yourself, stop punishing yourself, stop looking down on people, let the malice go, forgive someone, treat your mother right, forget what your father did to you, say no to thoughts that try to control you, be strong, don’t live afraid, don't let people break you down, is your Joy to express, don't allow the circumstances around you to define who you are! You are not a failure.
“Men are anxious to improve their circumstances, but are unwilling to improve themselves; they therefore remain bound. The man who does not shrink from self-crucifixion can never fail to accomplish his object upon which his heart is set. This is true of earthly as well as heavenly things. Even the man whose object is to acquire wealth must be prepared to make great personal sacrifices before he can accomplish his object; and how much more so he who would realize a strong and well-poised life." James Allen.
