SELF-CONTROL

Leave a comment

Dear Lord, we have been watching
the Olympic games:
snow-boarding, ice skating, and skiing.
What amazing skills
these young people possess,
and how they have disciplined
themselves through the years
in order to compete.
I wonder what amazing results
would be achieved
if your followers
were that disciplined.
Dear Lord, open my eyes
to ways that I can exercise more self-control
in order to live fully in your kingdom
and share it others.

1 Corinthians 9:25:
Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one.
