Living in a time of instant gratification, where morality and self-control are seen as ‘oppressive’ ideas, it’s important that Conservatives speak up about the importance of these principles (along with freedom, liberty, justice, etc. etc.). Far too many people look up to Hollywood as some sort of great leader and it’s honestly doing a good deal of damage to this country and her people.
Tim Keller shared some wisdom on the topic:
Today self-control is often seen as unhealthy. Following one’s passion, feeling one’s anger, & being spontaneous are all valued in the world of the creative & sophisticated. Yet so many of our most famous celebrities, following this pattern, have made a shipwreck of their lives.

This would have only been funnier if he had said, ‘True dat.’
But you get the point.
Ask any HR rep…there is no work ethic, little pride in work and even less respect. The transient, disposable life.

Now now, we can’t expect people to work hard.
That’s privilege or something.
Yet self discipline is the THE key factor to success….

Something we don’t exactly see celebrated in Hollywood.
Sounds like the Left.

There’s a reason for that.
Not only is self-control a fruit of the Spirit but self-government requires self discipline imo
