MOMS and Self-control

South MOMS was blessed to hear from speakers Kempton and Caryn Turner last Tuesday.  Here are a few highlights from their message on Self-Control:

  • Self-control is the ability to keep yourself from indulging in things that do not increase your joy in Christ and bring glory to Him.
  • Self-control sets up a firewall around your heart, mind and home to help protect you from unholy, unhealthy pleasures and patterns that long to destroy you and your family.  (Proverbs 25:28)
  • Self-control is a fruit of the spirit.  When you are saved, self-control takes up residence in your heart.  Therefore, we are not self-controlled, but spirit-controlled.  (Galatians 5:22-23)
  • A self-controlled woman is disciplined with her tastes, her time, her thoughts, and her talk.

 

Want to hear more?  Mark your calendar now!  The Turners will speak again next spring--at Downtown MOMS on April 3rd and at North MOMS on April 17th.
