March's Virtue of the Month: SELF-CONTROL


Self-control is saying "no" to yourself and "YES" to something greater.

Setting GOALS for yourself helps you to practice self-control.
  • Example: You have a goal to achieve an A in a subject. So you choose to study for a test rather than watch TV.

Self-control means doing the right thing whether you feel like it or not.
  • Self-control is also understood as self-discipline and self-regulation.

All good traits of character are founded on self-control.
A person needs self-control to:
  • Sit still and listen
  • Control your temper and tongue
  • Respect others and their belongings
  • Eat moderately and healthy
  • Persevere to get work done
  • Moderate internet surfing and gaming

Self-control is when my "self" is controlled by the Holy Spirit
Galatians 5:22-23

Watch your thoughts,
They become your words.
Watch your words,
They become your actions,
Watch your actions,
They become your habits.
Watch your habits,
They become your character.
Watch your character,
It becomes your destiny.
