Today's reading: Titus 2:1-15

The teaching and command to be "self-controlled" is found throughout Titus 2--first for older men, next for older and younger women, and lastly for younger men. Then as Paul concludes this section of instruction, he once again points out that being self-controlled needs to be part of who we are as followers of Christ.

"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age..." (vs. 11-12).

As a follower of Christ, why is having self-control important--in our personal lives (with family and friends), as we're out in the world (doing business, at school, encountering strangers)? In what areas do you struggle with self-control? What can/will you do going forward to help regulate yourself so that you can respond with self-control when a difficult situation arises? Tami

AS A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST, WHY IS HAVING SELF—CONTROL IMPORTANT—because we have a fallen nature, live in a fallen world and most of us work with ungodly or fallen people that can be very trying at times. If we are bearing the fruit of the Spirit as listed in Galatians 5:22-23 it become easier because self-control is a fruit of the Spirit.
(Food for Thought) “We portray the Characteristics of those we spend the most time with, spending time with God will bring about godly Characteristics.”
