Dear Daughter of Almighty God
Galatians 5:22-23 (ESV)
22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Self-control can we leave this one out, no. We need self-control for many reasons like resisting what is not good for us, being able to say no when it is the right thing to say, not getting angry. I am sure you can think of more reasons.
Self-control also helps us to make time for the Word of God and prayer (talking with God). Self-control helps us to turn the TV or computer off and spend time with our Heavenly Father. Self-control helps us get up on a Sunday morning to go fellowship with like minded people and to hear the Word of God taught.
The Holy Spirit is right there with us helping us every step of the way to grow our fruit.
