“A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.” Proverbs 25:28
The value of a human is priceless and we should give our utmost in protecting as well as preserving such value. Without a wall, it is difficult for us to resist materialism, worldliness, self-centeredness, indulgence in trend and pattern of the world.
That is why it is important for us to build a wall of self-control and one that will help us preserve human value. Paul said, “For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness…” (2 Peter 1:5-7)
If we love our life and preserve our human value, make sure we build a strong wall to fend off what is of the flesh.
