It is not just a choice between doing good or evil, it is a matter of who you are handing over your soul.

It is almost impossible to have a successful marriage without self discipline. Successful relationship thrives on self discipline.
In marriage, it takes discipline to keep playing one’s part regardless of convenience. It requires a lot of discipline to stay true to marital vow, when you are no longer in the mood under which you made the vow.
You will always meet someone better than your spouse, maybe prettier, richer or more intelligent. No matter who you marry, your loyalty will always be tested and there will always be reasons to let go of your spouse.
Marriage reveals the weaknesses in your spouse. You begin to see the real person behind the man or woman you married. You will sometimes question your decision in choosing your spouse, but self discipline will help you to overlook and stay committed at making your spouse a better person.
One of the main reasons for high rate of divorce today is lack of Self Discipline. Abusive husbands lack self discipline and cannot restrain themselves from assaulting their wives. A man who cannot exercise control over himself is like a city without fence, anyone and anything can enter.
Your mood or emotion should never control you, you must always learn to be in charge of your life. Tame your tongue, bridle your anger, put a leash on your body. The things that break homes are not big issues, they are usually small issues that accumulate over time. Learn to deal with every open wound before it becomes a big sore.
It is not everytime you say things as it comes to you, some things are only acceptable when presented nicely. It is called tact. Be disciplined enough to weigh and frame your words before utterance. A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
Proverbs 25:11 KJV.
Put your ego aside and apologise, and not only when you are at fault. Nothing thrives in a state of disharmony, so even if it means swallowing your pride to make peace, do so, the end will always justify you. Forgive and let go, not forgiving will harm you more.
Be a supportive wife. Do not shift all the burden on your husband when you can help. Be economically active as a wife, you must always have a source of income no matter how small. Invest in your home, do not spend all on unnecessary frivolities.
Resolve your issues between yourselves , as much as possible, avoid third party interference. Let God be your umpire and let His words be your guide.
Good morning and have a fruitful week.
A life that is run without checks and balances is akin to a vehicle without brake system, sooner or later, there will be collision. You cannot live successfully without self discipline.
“The Price of Discipline is always less than the pain of regret.” – Nido Qubein.
Self-discipline helps in every area of life. In lifestyle, eating habit, academics, spiritual development, financial management, marital success, leadership, and national development, to mention a few.
Some of the health challenges we face are results of a poorly disciplined life. You cannot spend all day sitting down watching TV or working and expect a perfectly functioning body. Free circulation of blood in your body will be impeded and this can bring about ailments like high blood pressure and heart related disease. You must train yourself to have regular exercise.
Unhealthy eating habit can damage your health and physique. Uncontrollable appetite could be a sign of lack of self discipline. You should not allow your body to dictate to you all the time. You have been given a mind to control the desires of the body. Choose what to eat and stop eating everything you choose! Set time limits for when to eat to avoid overworking you body metabolism.
Outstanding students are usually deliberate students. They deliberately commit themselves to hours of reading and studying. They constantly deny themselves of pleasures and focus on the prize of being the best. Pleasure and Prize hardly go together. You must choose one. If you want to have all the pleasure, you can not aim to win the prize at the same time. This does not mean you should not have relaxation time. The key thing is to have a disciplined schedule of studying and relaxing!
The more you are willing to defer gratification and pleasure, the more disciplined you become, and the easier it gets to achieve your goals. The reason for several aborted ‘New Year Resolutions’ is the lack of discipline to follow through. Self discipline helps you to follow through your goals and plans. Stick to plan!
God did not make mistake by setting order for day and night, the aim is to have orderliness. A disciplined life is an orderly life. Check your life!
Barka De Sallah to all our Muslim brethren. Have a beautiful Sallah celebration.
Scientifically, a man is the male gender of the ‘homo sapiens’ specie in the ‘homo’ genus. A man has distinct features from the female version of homo sapiens (woman). He is stronger, more aggressive, wilder and inclined to use logical reasoning as opposed to woman who uses more of intuitive reasoning.
According to the Bible, the man was created first and placed in the garden of Eden to tender it. To prevent loneliness and being overburdened, God made the man an helpmeet called the woman. The man upon creation was given a responsibility to dress and keep the Garden.
Essentially, man is a creature of responsibilities, and all men have one garden or the other to dress and keep. The garden could be your family, your community, your unit at your place of work, your state, or province, or region or nation.
If you are a man, you are responsible to keep your own garden. It is therefore important to understand this critical role of keeping, maintaining and fostering the growth of the garden.
It is equally important to understand that being a man is more than having a six pack figure, more than wearing fancy looking beards or hair, more than wearing the latest designer or driving the latest car, more than having strings of women under your control. Being a man is responsibility and that responsibility is enormous.
In this series, we will look at who qualifies to be a man, the man as a Gardener, his garden and how he is to relate with his Creator and the woman.
After this series, we will do same study on the woman, and at the end of it all, my hope is that we will all understand our roles better and become more responsible.
Have a great week ahead.
