Verse of the Day for August 22, 2009
Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. (NIV)
Self-discipline is the ability to voluntarily forego gratification in the present so as to maximize it in the future. What do you want in the future that will require a sacrifice in the present?
