Understanding Self-control

Message in the picture

“The Spirit God gave us does not make us afraid. His Spirit is a source of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (ERV)

Scripture for the day

Proverbs 29:11 (GWT) A fool expresses all his emotions, but a wise person controls them.

Thought for the day

Self-control is a very important part of the Christian life. In the Wisdom of Solomon 8:7 (GNT), Solomon states “Do you love justice? All the virtues are the result of Wisdom’s work: justice and courage, self-control and understanding. Life can offer us nothing more valuable than these.” Solomon considered self-control very valuable; Proverbs 25:28 (NLT) “A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls” meaning you are without defense and exposed.

To have self-control is to have control of your actions {works—the things you do}, desires {thoughts; the things you think about} and emotions {feelings-our response or reaction to events}. Be blessed—Tim.
