Self-control must be practiced in good and right things: (1) eating, (2) pleasure, (3) work, and (4) sleep. Self-control must be practiced as Christians completely abstain from: (1) fornication, (2) lying, (3) gambling, (4) drunkenness, and (5) stealing.
Christians must control their temper. “He who is slow to wrath has great understanding, but he who is impulsive exalts folly” (Proverbs 14:29).
The tongue must also be controlled by Christians. “If anyone among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this one’s religion is useless” (James 1:26).
We need Jesus! God bless you today and always. I love you.
