Practice Self-Control

Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”—Matthew 16:24 ESV
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said, “The more small pleasures a person gives up to concentrate on one important task, the stronger he becomes. Jesus Christ was the greatest example of One Who depended on self-denial for strength to perform His ministry.”
Lord, help me remember that the ultimate in self-control is not for me to become master of my fate, but to be able to serve You.
