For Good Self-Control, Try Getting Religious About It

That’s the headline of a NY Times article about the connection between self-control and religion. The religious tend to do better in school, live longer, have more satisfying marriages and be generally happier.

The article reckons the results are ‘ascribed to the rules imposed on believers and to the social support they receive from fellow worshippers.’ Of course, self control is a fruit of the spirit according to Gal 5:22-25, something that is put within us by God and encouraged and developed in the church.

So for a better life this year get right with God and come along to church.
