So I’m learning about self control today. Self control touches so many areas of our life. Everything from not eating the entire bowl of Peanut M&M’s (in my defense the bowl was no where near even being a quarter full) to not flipping off your computer monitor when you get an email that makes you mad (just being honest and transparent here).
I’m seeing a natural progression in my lack of self control. It goes a little something like this (fast forward past the fall of man and the fact that even as Christians we all still struggle with the sin nature):
I really don’t like being like this. (Of course does anyone really?) The road to sanctification is not easy. I am grateful the Lord wants to dredge out the nasty business in my life.
