Self-Control… Does anyone else look at that word and pause? We all want to think we have self-control, but do we really?
Self-Control: Restraint exercised over one’s own impulses, emotions, or desires.
It’s so easy to point out what others are not doing right, how THEY aren’t exercising control. But no one likes to think about their own failures, their own lack of restraint.
I want to take this time to retrain myself and regain my “control” so that I can not only teach this to my girls but show them. Let them see that it’s not easy for me but it is important.
Let’s look at what the Bible has to say about self-control. How do we know it’s important to God? Fist, there are 52 verses that talk about self-control!
In today’s study we are going to take a deeper look at 5 of them. Simply click on the image below and download your Fruit of the Spirit Study: Self-Control to join in. I’d love to know your notes and take-away’s from today’s study – comment below or on the posts on Facebook and Instagram!

Fruit of the Spirit Bible Study
We were created in the image of God. So it should not be a surprise that when we read the 19 verses on faithful or faithfulness in the Bible that over 80% of them are talking about God and His faithfulness. He is our great example. We are made to follow Him. So let’s dig in and see how He is faithful to us and how we can mold our actions and thoughts after His.
We are not perfect (far from it) and we aren’t meant to be. But we do know we are to follow God’s lead and remain faithful to Him.
This week we are going to explore 7 verses to discuss how God is faithful. Find out what is important to Him and how can we follow His example. God has proven His faithfulness over and over again. Knowing we are created in His image we know that this is already in us. We need to want to search Him out. Find those dark places we need to shine His light on.
