“All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify.” I Corinthians 10:23 NKJV
The distinction between permissible and beneficial is the difference between good and great. Don’t settle for what’s permissible. That’s the path of least resistance. Go after greatness by going the extra mile!
It’s a sanctified stubborn streak that refuses to compromise its convictions.
It’s Making decisions against yourself.
We want success without sacrifice, but life doesn’t work that way. Success will not be shortchanged. You have to pay the price, and it never goes on sale. The best decision you can make for yourself is making decisions against yourself. You have to discipline yourself to do the right things day in and day out, week in and week out, year in and year out. And if you do, the payoff is far greater than the price you paid.
What decision against yourself do you need to make today?
