From over-eating, over-spending, alcohol abuse or perversion of sex to overindulging in entertainment, over-working or laziness to the inability to control our own emotionally charged reactions, lacking self-control is the harmful abuse of God's good gifts. Phone, food, and frustration are three personal areas I'm seeking to turn over to God. How about you?
"True self-control is not about bringing our selves under our own control, but under the power of Christ.”
“We are promised the gift of self-control, yet we also must take it by force.”
