Dear Hannah: Self-Control


 
Dear Hannah,

Our world has 7 institutions that influence thoughts, decisions, and actions ...

  1. Religion
  2. Medicine
  3. Government
  4. Education
  5. Family
  6. Arts / Entertainment
  7. Media

Each has the capacity to uplift and empower through ministry - or to undermine and control through arrogance, its root - ignorance, distractions, and economic dependence.

Don't get it twisted.

We have to keep each institution honest, accountable, and true to the game by following the rules of self-control ...
