Hi Champ. It’s a beautiful day to learn some wisdom. Lend me your ears and pay close attention to today’s topic. we’ll be learning about Self-control.

What is self-control?

It is the ability to control one’s emotions or behaviour, especially in difficult situations.

From this definition, you see that it’s very important for us as children of God to have self-control.

Let’s see what the Bible says about it.

… Like a city whose walls are broken down is a man who lacks self-control. Proverbs 25:28 – (NIV)

Literally, if a city’s walls are broken down, it means it lacks security. It can be attacked at any point. Imagine if the walls of your house were broken down, it leaves you unprotected and in danger of harm.

God wants us as his children to live a self-controlled life. In fact, the bible cautions us to have self-control to avoid falling into the devil’s temptations. It is one of the things that his grace helps us to do

See what the Bible says in Titus 2:11-12(NIV)

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled,  upright and godly lives in this present age,

The Holy Spirit works in us to make this possible.

How do we live self-controlled lives?

Join me tomorrow as I break this down for you

Lord, help me to live a self- controlled life. Amen
