The Christian Life was intended to be a fruitful life. As we grow in our intimacy with Christ, the "Fruit of the Spirit" in our lives will become more evident others around us. Today I'm going to focus on the final fruit on the list, the fruit of Self Control! I'll illustrate this fruit through the world of nature & animals. I hope Ewe have enjoyed our "glimpses" of the "Fruit of the Spirit". Famous author & American statesman Daniel Webster wrote," Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future lives and crimes to society."
|This is torture! How much longer till I can eat?|
|It seemed like an "EGG-cellent" idea at the time!|
|I need self control! Too much of a good thing can lead to less teeth!|
|Going "Hog Wild" at New Years can land Ewe on someone's dinner plate!|
|Self Control involves being angry, yet without sinning!|
|Self Control means not letting the sun go down on Ewer anger!|
|Are Ewe "Nuts"? Do Ewe really want me to count calories?|
|Self Control helps me to keep my Big Mouth shut!|
|Self Control helps us love others that are "Different" than we are!|
Self-control is the exercise of inner strength under the direction of sound judgment that enables us to do, think, and say the things that are pleasing to God."
|Self Control is responding correctly, even if it takes a little longer!|
|Self Control Is knowing when ,"Enough is Enough"!|
|The Shepherd knows what's BEST for EWE!|
|Did Ewe know that we "RAM" our heads together in mating season?|
"I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, & I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing." John 15:5
