If you want your children to model self-control in their lives, then you must show them self-control in yours.
This is an area I feel like I have not done so well. I need to place all my “control” into the hands of God.
How to control the “stress” that leads to my outbursts of frustration and anger?
- Avoid negative people (Proverbs 22:24).
- Avoid knee-jerk responses when aggravated by others (James 3:2).
- Show control in the midst of chaos or emergency (James 1:26).
- Beg God to give you peace and understanding (Philippians 4:7).
