These children in Zambia are being taught the importance of making right decisions based on the Word of God and from a life under control. Many times decisions and choices are made that do not reflect wisdom, good sense, and self-control.
It is the way of human thinking and reasoning to blame others when we encounter problems instead of taking personal responsibility. The Apostle Paul in I Corinthians 9:24-27 reminds us that the matter of personal responsibility in living and making choices is very important. God has promised to give wisdom, strength, and grace for every situation in life. However, it is our personal responsibility to respond with right thinking, good sense, and Biblical obedience.
Self-control is saying and doing that which is right, best, pleasing to God, and brings joy while anchored in the Word of God and lived out with self-control to honor our Lord. (I Corinthians 10:31)
