What is self-control? It is defined as : restraint exercised over one’s own impulses, emotions, or desires. The bible says in Galatians 5:23,gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. We all struggle with control over some area in our life. Here is a quote by Charles Stanley, “Your thoughts are the determining factor as to whose mold you are conformed to. Control your thoughts and you control the direction of your life. ” We want to behave in a way that is pleasing to the Lord and we have to ask daily for self control in all things.
Better to be patient than powerful; better to have self-control than to conquer a city. Proverbs 16:32
