Athletes are often honored and encouraged for self-discipline and self-control that is training, we should “train” for serving in God’s Kingdom.  Proverbs (25:28) tells us “Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control.”  Opposite self-control is loose living of any kind, and “people are slaves to whatever masters them” (2 Peter 2:19).  But us controlling us doesn’t help us much, true self-control is Christ-control, letting Jesus and his Holy Spirit have their way with us!
