Mortify The Old Self

"Every athlete exercises self-control in all things.
They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. Well, I do not run aimlessly, I do not box as one beating the air;
but I pommel my body and subdue it,
lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified." (1)
