Fruits of the Spirit: Self-Control

There are many different ways we can spend our money during the Christmas season! For example, colorful lights or all white? Real or fake tree? Shopping around for sales to find the best deal, or doing all your shopping at once to get it over with?!  

For me, it’s multicolored lights, a Charlie Brown tree, and I try to get it the shopping over with asap!

Now my wife is a pro at shopping sales. She’ll spend weeks looking for the best deal and holds off till the price is right!

See, my wife exhibits all the Fruits of the Spirit, but especially self-control.

So no matter what kind of lights or tree you buy, show self-control in your spending this season. It’s a great way for others to see Christ in you.

A budget is a great way to take the first step! To get started, visit
