For the past week and a half we have been looking at the best gifts we will ever give to our children and grandchildren - showing the Fruit of the Spirit in our lives and homes. Today we will look at the last part of the Fruit - Self Control.When we show self control in how we respond to the challenges we all face and in the choices we make, we are giving our children and grandchildren something very valuable - the example of what it looks like to be a wise person who shows self control.
Self control also shows itself in the choices we make to purposefully hand down confident faith. When we are thoughtful and intentional in the things we do and say - like letting them overhear when we tell others about how we are so thankful for them and about the things they are learning and doing.
This year give your children and grandchildren the best gifts of all - love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control - nothing else you could give them will even come close.
