Proverbs The Wisdom Of God Series 7

Proverbs 25:28 He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls. [ KJV]

To live in such a state as this scripture is saying, is to live a life completely open for every attack life brings our way, further more resulting in a helpless state. In the bible cities were fortified by a wall for protection . Once the wall was destroyed the city is open to any enemy to help themselves
, and once the city is destroyed theres nothing left. All this because of no self control. The indication here is also speaking of a hot temper. More marriages, jobs, careers and friends have been destroyed by this force perhaps more than any other. A hot tempered person cannot be reasoned with until they get it under control and by then the damage is done. Whats the answer ? We must make self discipline a priority daily in order to even live a half decent life. Just because we profess to be a christian does'nt
make it any easier . Having no rule over our own spirit is more than  just taking drugs, alcohol or other substances. Just look at things such as facebook , texting and such. The list is endless.We must yield our tempers and spirits to God and watch how much smoother life can be.
May God bless you on your journey!
