Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

One fruit of the Spirit is self-control. Self-control is needed in a lot of areas.

For a healthy body, we need to have self-control regarding our eating. For a productive work day, we must control ourselves with the amount of TV we watch at night. To have a healthy relationship with our children, we need to control ourselves with how often we discipline our children.

Luke 16:10-11 says, “Whoever is faithful with very little will also be faithful with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. If, then, you have not been faithful with worldly wealth, who will entrust you with true riches?”

When we pair self-control with faithfulness, we can see how it impacts our future. If we don’t have self-control regarding our spending habits now, how can God entrust us with that great financial increase we’ve been praying for? If we overwork ourselves because we don’t know when to stop, how can we be faithful to that spouse we’ve been believing God for? A lack of self-control can hinder the manifestation of our prayers.

Receive everything God has promised by being led by the Spirit and practicing self-control.
