And a (completely unrelated, but motivating) daily Proverb...
"He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls."
Even though city walls restricted the inhabitants' movements, people were happy to have them. Without walls, they would have been vulnerable to attack by any passing group of marauders. Self-control limits us, to be sure, but it is necessary. An out-of-control life is open to all sorts of enemy attack. Think of self-control as a wall for defense and protection.- Life Application Bible Footnote
Today, and one day at a time, may we be transformed to bear the fruit of temperance in a culture that knows no self-control.
