Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness

We assume things about other people, often the worst. Instead of giving them the benefit of the doubt, we react based on what we have made up in our minds about them. We don’t even attempt to find the truth. These assumptions are often born out of our own insecurities and fear of rejection. This assumption thing ruins relationships.

Self-discipline and Self-control

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Set apart living, Training in righteousness

A lack of self-control can result in endless pain for the one who doesn’t have it and sometimes even more for the one who falls victim to someone who lacks self-control. Lives can be and are ruined because of this. Accidents due to drunken drivers, children whose lives are ruined because of adults without self-control. Broken marriages…to name a few examples. Each of us have done things we will always regret, things we did as a result of no self-control. This article is not to condemn, but to help. These situations and temptations are a part of being human, but we must know how to deal with this. We must know our limitations and our strengths in order to ensure we don’t fall victim to this and suffer or make others suffer.
