LETTING GO OF THE RUBBISH
How good is self-control? It’s a blessing if we choose to use it. It gives us the ability to make sound choices, to keep what’s good and leave the garbage behind. If anger arises choose to leave it behind, if resentment occurs, leave it where you found it, if people irritate and annoy you take them off your plate. Learn to be selective and fill your plate only with things you enjoy and allow you an opportunity to live a better, happier and more productive life. Happiness is a choice not an afterthought. Life has a lot to offer, some of it good and some not so good. What happens in life is not always the issue, how we respond is. What will you choose to fill your plate with today? But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control…. 2 Peter 1:5-6
