Hard To Dominate One’s Self


anecdotal stories
A college president not long ago made this arresting statement to a class of graduating seniors: “It gets easier and easier for man to dominate his universe … and harder for him to dominate himself.” He went on to say, “It matters little what you learn or express if in the end you cannot find some ways of working things out with your neighbors.” We cannot dominate the universe, but, with God’s help, we can dominate ourselves.

For there are many insubordinate, both idle talkers and deceivers . . . whose mouths must be stopped. – Titus 1:10-11
