Ah, self-control. This is probably the fruit I struggle with the most on a personal level. I have ever since I was a tiny tot. When I was 6 months old, my grandmother bought my parents Dr. Dobson's "The Strong-Willed Child" book - apparently, she saw something in me at that age and felt my parents could use the extra encouragement/help. Now, I am learning that self-control for little men is something entirely different. They "do life" in quite a different manner than I'm accustomed to seeing in my girl-world. They literally attack life - head-on. Sometimes with their heads. Or maybe that's just my little one as he is learning to crawl. I can see now that self-control will be a constant battle - control in the line at the grocery, control with our mouth and when we're supposed to be quiet, control of our thought-life as we are exposed to the world, and control of our self as we learn right from wrong. Truly, self-control encompasses all other vices - if we had control of self, we wouldn't struggle with lying, or pride, or stealing, or fill-in-the-blank. Today, let's pray for our little warriors to gain control and then to submit that control to their heavenly Father.
