“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

The fruit of the Spirit is self-control.

We can experience a lot of feelings and emotions in one day. Happy, sad, mad, excited, the list goes on and on. All of these feelings are perfectly normally, even getting mad. BUT it’s how we respond to each situation that matters especially the ones that upset us. It’s not okay to get mad and then hurt someone with our words. Even when we are mad or upset we need to have self-control. We need to be calm, patient, and think about what we are saying. This can take practice. Luckily, we have God to help us with this.
