Ice Cube made the term "Check Yo Self" quite popular. However the original version was the 1970s phrase- "check it before you wreck it" by Nationwide Safti-Break Centers.
There's a certain level of discipline required at the top. Pharaoh was wicked but he couldn't tolerate a murderer as the heir apparent to his throne in the person of Moses. Similarly, Kim Jong-nam-the recently assassinated brother of the North Korean dictator fell out of favor with his father when he visited Japan with a fake passport causing huge embarrassment to the highly secretive and isolated Korean nation. Isn't it suprising that a dictator would expect a high level of discipline from his son? It shouldn't be because kingdoms rise and fall on discipline irrespective of what they stand for.
Voting is underway in the French Presidential election- however there's a man who could have been king- can you remember Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the former IMF President that was involved in several financial and sex scandals? Oh, what about the former football player who committed suicide last week- I am referring to Aaron Hernandez- the disgraced football player and convicted murderer.
Discipline isn't just the soul of an army- It's the pillar that determines success or failure in any endeavor. The devil provides people the opportunity to destroy themselves at the top. Can you remember Tafa Balogun, the former IGP that was disgraced out of office due to his gluttony and corrupt practices. Let's examine a thing or two; Tafa Balogun wasn't disgraced when he was a DPO, he wasn't embarassed as a commissioner, he was destroyed as the head of the Nigerian Police Force. You still remember Diepreye Alamieyeseigha the disgraced and late former Governor of Bayelsa state don't you?
You must be very careful at the top. If David-the-shepherd was humiliated, it wouldn't have made news- however when he became king and killed Uriah, the entire nation heard it.
Make adjustments in your life and be determined to live right. May God grant us the grace to do his will.
