Enjoying Everyday Life
Ephesians – Part 14
January 20, 2022
A 15-minute teaching applying practical principles from God's Word to everyday life.
Developing Discipline and Self-Control
Have you ever felt out of control in an area of your life? Have you ever thought, If I eat one cookie, I’m going to want to eat them all? If so, you’re not alone. All of us have areas we’d like to improve—whether it’s to grow spiritually, do well in our job, exercise…or simply not eat that extra cookie. And one thing’s for certain: it’s impossible to do it without discipline and self-control.
