As we practice martial arts and continue to exercise self-control, it is my prayer throughout this next year that we continue to grow in Christ. When life throws us a tough choice, we should stop and think first, then react.
Something that we should ask ourselves to help us apply self-control is; “What do I REALLY want?” Now you should be honest with yourself when answering that question. The Bible tells us that we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. If you study God’s word, the answer to that question should reflect the same thing that God wants for you. This alone will help you in practicing self-control.
