Cookie Monster Displays Fruit of the Spirit: Self-Control

The Apostle Paul listed the "fruit of the Spirit" in one of his letters.

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law." - Galatians 5:22–23 ESV

The Open Bible has compiled a list of 73 verses on the topic of self-control.

The Bible teaches us to resist temptation even though it isn't always easy. So the next time you are tempted, try to remember 1 Corinthians 10:13 ESV which says, "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."

In this video Cookie Monster sings about self-control.
