My Favorite Verse: The King James version of 2 Timothy 1:7

"For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and of love and of a sound mind."

This is my favorite verse because it constantly reminds me that God has equipped us to handle everything that the world tries to throw at us.  A lot of other translations use the term "self-discipline" instead of "sound mind"…  I like "sound mind" because i think it encompasses both self-discipline and also alludes to elements of mental peace and clarity.
