There is a map.
And on this map are two points: Point A and Point B.
In between Point A and Point B, is a wide and treacherous river. This river is filled with alligators, crocodiles, snakes, piranhas, robbers, killers, thieves, drug dealers, triflin men, triflin women, fast men and fast women.
It’s our job and God given responsibility to cross this river!
We have to get from where we are right now – which is Point A, to where we are destined to reside – which is Point B!
But here’s the million dollar question:
How do we get from Point A to Point B, and how do we cross this river without falling prey to the predators that feed within it?
Answer: We need a bridge. And that bridge is referred to as self-discipline.
I challenge us all to start building our bridge today!
