self-denial

What should self-denial look like in my life? It is more than discipline. Discipline is necessary but insufficient. All of my impulses are to reduce pain and expand happiness. I suspect I’m assessing my life with faulty tools. At the very least, they are tools I have constructed from the materials within a self-serving culture. What does it mean for me to pick up my cross and deny myself?

Categories

I think faithfulness to the mission outperforms allegiance to particular categories. I’ve never liked rules that basically protect us from ourselves. Being smart and disciplined works better than a double-edged rule.
