Solomon says, “A person without self-control is like a city with broken-down walls” (Proverbs 25:28 – https://bit.ly/3iWpiwO).
When we watch too much. Eat too much. Drink too much. Play too much. Dwell too much. We let down the guarding walls to our heart and mind, giving the Devil an opportunity to plant lies (1 Peter 5:8 – https://bit.ly/3j7mVJd).
“It’s not harming anyone.” To whisper half-truths. “They’ll like you more”. To deceive. “You’ll feel better”.
Self-control is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:23 – https://bit.ly/3p7j2rw). Ask the Holy Spirit to guard your heart and mind today.
