Like a city that is broken into and without walls
Is a man who has no control over his spirit.
Proverbs 25:28 (NASB)
The New International Version makes it a bit clearer:
Like a city whose walls are broken through
is a person who lacks self-control.
Proverbs 25:28 (NIV)
The theme of my daily devotionals today (I have two) was self control. One spoke of how we should respond to tense situations instead of reacting and causing more issues. This definitely spoke to me because I have a temper and can fly off the handle at a moment's notice. I definitely need to learn to respond instead of react.
