I was cleaning out a inbox last week when I found an email that contained this verse. I really don’t remember the circumstances in which it was shared, but I think it, like most Proverbs, is a profound piece of wisdom that we can never read and think about too much.
Those who do not control themselves
are like a city whose walls are broken down. Proverbs 25:28 NCV
There’s so much in those 15 words that I am certain several preachers could turn them into a three-part series. But I simply ask you to read them, think about them, and look at your life. Where are you no controlling yourselves, and can you see how you might represent a broken down city?
Identify those breaches and set a new course.
