Self-Control

“Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls” (Proverbs 25:28).

Self-control is the art of putting what’s best above what we want. When we give in to every impulse and desire, we start to sabotage our own lives. Self-control is a quality that Paul lists as part of the fruit of the Spirit—necessary for all Christians to develop in their walk with their Creator.
