Temperance in Our Homes {Series Part 9} with Wisdom Wednesday Link Up

This is the final post in my Fruit of the Spirit series, and I hope you’ll stop by over here where it will go live on January 1st, 2014.

I honestly believe that God delayed this post intentionally. He has been working on this fruit in me for quite awhile now, and I don’t know that I would have been ready to write it any earlier.


Temperance is important in each of our lives and is greatly lacking in our world and society. We have the ability to change the world’s direction by teaching our children the discipline and use of temperance. What we often forget when we tell our kids that we “expect more” from them, is that much of what they’ve learned is from us. We must seek God and His wisdom in helping our children learn temperance at a young age.

    This is such a good study on temperance. I remember thinking how complicated to have to teach my children the same lessons that I was learning too!! Thanks so much for hosting today.

      It really is?!? Sometimes I get just want to throw my hands up in the air because I see them doing the very same things I do wrong 🙁 Yet, I am reminded that talking them through why it is wrong and admitting I’m wrong is essential in teaching them. Thanks for stoppin by hun! Blessings!
