This month we will be learning about self-control, which is choosing to do what you should even when you don’t want to. We don’t always want to do the right thing, but with God’s help we can have self-control, and choose to do the right thing.
Our memory verse this month is 2 Peter 1:3 - “God’s power has given us everything we need to lead a goldy life..” This verse will encourage us to remember that our strength to make difficult choices comes from God.
This week, we will look at Proverbs 16:32, where Solomon uses the idea of a fighting warrior to help us understand that, regardless of the situation, being patient and keeping our cool is always the wise choice.
Bottom Line: Think before you lose your temper. God can give us the strength we need to pause and think about the consequences of our actions. Rather than letting our anger get the better of us, God can help us show patience and keep the situation under control.
See you Thursday!
