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.
A sound mind, rather self-control, which keeps "a constant rein on all the passions and desires" (Trench), and would thus keep in check timidity and undue despondency. Some take "sound mind" to signify here "correction" of others, Church discipline, a meaning which the word will bear, but which is out of harmony with the other two elements of the special gift here enumerated, both of which are personal graces, not official powers.
