January : Self-Control

January : Self-Control
“Like a city breached, without walls, is one who lacks self-control..”
(Prov 25: 28)
God wants us to do what it is we know and feel is right. A person of self-control…
Follows his/her conscience
Is patient with himself/herself and others
Shares and takes turns
Is able to use prayer to calm himself/herself down
Thinks before he/she reacts (WWJD*)
Looks for peaceful ways to solve conflict
Tries to do what’s best for everyone
Has the power to stand up for what is right
*What Would Jesus Do?
