Maintain Your Walls

Walls protect us from enemies, but they also protect us from ourselves.  Hadrian’s Wall protected the island of England and The Great Wall of China protected them from foreign invaders. Proverbs 25:28 says “He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.” If walls are not maintained they fall into ruin. Just like actual walls, we have a wall called self-control. It can keep us from making ungodly decisions. Self control,  like walls, must be maintained by prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit; after all, self-control is a fruit of the Spirit. God bless you today as you maintain your wall!
