“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.”
-1 Corinthians 10:13
Wrapping up with the Fruit of the Spirit Instagram Challenge, after gentleness comes SELF-CONTROL! Self-control is the ninth and FINAL fruit of the Spirit! Practicing self-control is something that takes mindfulness in all aspects – I have to practice self-control when I’m eating Mexican food or I’ll eat my weight in chips and salsa. But in all seriousness, the Lord says so much about self-control in the Bible and why it is so important for us to honor.
This week’s verses are all centered around the theme of self-control, and like always, they are so important to memorize and keep in your heart! The more Scripture you can remember and cherish, the better – this is something that I’m always working to better myself at, and this challenge has been a huge step forward in memorizing scripture!
On top of the week’s new verses, Art & Soul has also created another CUSTOM PRINT to share with you all!! Download it, print it out, and put it up somewhere that you can see it as a reminder to always cling to the fruits of the Spirit and God’s Word! I’m putting mine next to my computer at work so it’s always visible to me during the day.
As we wrap the Fruit of the Spirit Instagram Challenge, I want to thank all of you who have faithfully participated! It has been so much fun to dig into God’s Word and see all of the creative ways that y’all have interpreted it! For more daily inspiration, be sure to follow Art & Soul!
