Pr 25:28 He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.
This scripture could be used for so much. I just got back from taking our youth snow tubing. You may ask what snow tubing has to do with the above scripture. It is a simple illustration, but the tubing park has lanes and each of the lanes has barriers so that the one beside you cannot come over.
I simply look at this as an illustration of this verse. If we don’t have any control over ourselves then we can cause trouble or a disaster. Can you imagine what it would be if everyone was able to sled down the hill at once with no barriers between? There would be major wrecks and probably injuries.
Matthew Henry says, “He lies exposed to all the temptations of Satan and becomes an easy prey to that enemy.” Wow, not much more needs said. God help us to stay in our own lane spiritually and not destroy any of God’s work and potential in our lives as well as others.
Have a blessed day
