The Last Fruit of the Spirit- Temperance

May 24, 2022

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: Galatians 5:22&23

Temperance is Emotional Restraint or Self-Control. Do we ever get angry and loose self-control? We have a temper and it shows.

How do we conquer bad temper? Give it all to Jesus. He wants us to be in control over our emotions.

Is it sinful to be angry? Not necessarily. What is sinful is how we control that anger. If we find ourselves getting angry, it is better to walk away than to shout, yell or worse.

The old saying I’d count to ten before you react. Good advice. Today let us decide to control our temper and give it to the Lord.
