I was at a prayer meeting on tuesday. When a friend of mine was praying for me--she prayed that God would give me self-control. I thought that was kind of odd, but I have been thinking about it all week and, it makes a lot of sense. The more I think about it--the more I realize my poor financial handelings, bad eating habits, procrastination, gossip, impulsive & useless purchesses and lack of spiritual displine fall quite nicely into the catergory of lack of self-control.
Then, I just happened to fall onto a christian website that characterizes (wisdom as the opposite of folly) and identifies folly as lacking in self control. yup. thats me.
