We who preach and write, do so in a manner different from which the Scriptures have been written. We write while we make progress. We learn something new every day. We speak as we still knock for understanding...If anyone criticizes me when I have said what is right, he does me an injustice. But I would be more angry with the one who praises me and takes what I have written for Gospel truth than I would be with the one who criticizes me unfairly. -Augustine

Twenty or so years later there was a follow up study done with these same students and come to find out, those children who deferred their gratification and waited for a second marshmallow, scored 200 points higher on an average on their SAT exams.  It would seem that self-discipline and deferred gratification are essential building blocks for intelligence. In the book, The Genius in All of Us, the author shares new evidence how our lifestyle today can effect the genetic makeup for the next four generations. hmm…four generations…where I have heard that number before? – Gen 15:16; Ex 20:5; 34:7; Deut 5:9; 2 Kings 10:30; 2 Kings 15:12
