The Beginning of Self-Control

Would you not say that some sins are a matter of lacking self-control? If that be so, then we need to learn to practice self-control. The place to begin is with our tongues, with the words we speak, “For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body” (James 3:2).
If we can control our tongues, we have acquired the ability to control the rest of the body. Concentrate, therefore, on controlling and using your tongue properly in every situation with every person.
See how far that takes you down the road to self-control.
