He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and she that ruleth her spirit than she that taketh a city.  Proverbs 16:32

We will start our study around sunset 7:45pm.

From an EGW devotional... 
He has conquered self-- the strongest foe man has to meet. The highest evidence of nobility in a Christian is self-control. 
... He who can stand unmoved amid a storm of abuse is one of God's heroes... 
She who has learned to rule her spirit will rise above the slights, the rebuffs, the annoyances to which we are daily exposed, and these will cease to cast a gloom over her spirit.
... The man or woman who preserves the balance of the mind when tempted to indulge passion, stands higher in the sight of God and heavenly angels than the most renowned general that ever led an army to battle and to victory. 
... What young men and women need is Christian heroism. God's word declares that he that ruleth his spirit is better than he that taketh a city. To rule the spirit means to keep self under discipline.... To seek earnestly to bring into their lives the perfection that is seen in the life of the Saviour, so that when Christ shall come, they will be prepared to enter in through the gates into the city of God.
