Scavenger Hunt Day 8 – Self Control

Our last full day in Wittenberg, we challenged ourselves to a high ropes course.  It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed the fellowship and team building the experience offered us all.  We ate lunch with some youth from Oakland and even learned to felt.  And.. because it was Day 8 of our Fruits of the Spirit Scavenger Hunt. We looked around town for the spirit of self control.  

We have all enjoyed reading your comments about where you see the fruits of the spirit in the world.  You may add your findings on our Facebook page at any time.

  1. Self-control isn’t easy for any of us…but I need to remember that it is a gift from our Savior! Striving for self-control with what I say each day is important to me. Sometimes I mess up! Thankfully, I am forgiven and get to start out with a brand new day!

  2. I learned self-control from my Mom – whose patience with my brother and me and my father were far greater than any one of us at any given time. I understand why it’s one of the Fruits of the Spirit, because when we keep our impulses under control to fight or be ‘in another’s face’ we have much greater peace within ourselves… which means we enhance another Fruit of the Spirit – ‘peace’.

    Proverbs 16:32
    32 Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city.
