Defining self control

Defining Self Control

Self-control is defined as “the ability to exercise restraint or control over one’s feeling, emotions, reaction, etc.”, “The ability to keep one’s emotions under control and restrain negative actions when provoked, when faced with opposition or hostility from others, or when working under conditions of stress. It also includes the ability to maintain stamina under continuing stress.”

One can also bring in scriptures according to the Bible, in attempt to understand Self-control.

Looking at the following scripture readings:

Proverbs 25:28 “A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls.

2 Timothy 1:7 “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.

1 Corinthians 7:9 “But if they cannot exercise self-control, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion
