The Foundation of Self-Control…

1024 579 Wayne

“Self-control isn’t just one good character trait, a nice addition to the pantheon of virtues.

It’s foundational. Not because it’s more important than other virtues, but because the others rely upon it.

Think about it.

Can you be faithful to your spouse without self-control? Can you be generous without self-control? Peaceable? Selfless? Honest? Kind? No, even the most basic altruism requires suspending your own interests to think of others.

And that can’t happen without self-control.”
