What does the Bible say about self control?
The Holy Spirit has control over my tongue. He watches over everything I say.
No bad word should come from your mouth, but what is good for edification, where it is necessary so that it brings grace to the listeners.
Your word is always in grace, seasoned with salt, so that you know how to answer each one.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and whoever loves them will eat their fruit.
Lord, put a guard on my mouth, keep the door of my lips!
You tested my heart, searched me through the night; you have purified me, and you have found nothing in which I have got lost with my thoughts or with my mouth. In the hustle and bustle of people, I took care of the ways of the violent according to the word of your lips. Soak my kicks in your footsteps so my gait won't falter!
Let the words of my mouth and the senses of my heart be pleasing to you, Lord, my rock and my Redeemer!
The fruit of his mouth saturates one with good, and what a person does with his hands will be rewarded.
Whoever takes care of his mouth protects his soul, but whoever opens his lips does it to his misfortune.
Proverbs 13, 3
If you have a wise heart, speak sensibly and increase the instruction on your lips.
Proverbs 16, 23
Whoever protects his mouth and tongue protects his soul from many a need.
But I tell you that on the day of judgment people have to give an account of every useless word they have spoken.
Through him let us now constantly offer God a sacrifice of praise, that is the fruit of the lips that confess his name!
Because we all often miss each other; if someone does not go wrong in the word, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check.
I have the purity of Jesus Christ in me.
Blessed are those who are pure in heart because they will see God!
Who has given himself for us to free us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for ourselves a people for special property who is eager to do good works.
Because we now have these promises, beloved, we want to purify ourselves from all defilement of the flesh and the spirit to complete holiness in fear of God!
2 Corinthians 7,1
For the grace of God has appeared, which is beneficial for all people; she takes us into discipline so that we can deny godlessness and worldly desires and live in a prudent and just and godly way in the current world.
Because God did not call us to be impure, but to sanctify.
God is only good against Israel, against those who are pure in heart.
How will a young man go unpunished? By keeping it according to your word!
And he made no difference between us and them after cleaning their hearts by faith.
I have the meaning of Jesus Christ and my thoughts and attitudes are obedient to the Holy Spirit.
And do not adapt to this course of the world, but let yourself be transformed in your being through the renewal of your mind, so that you can test what the good and pleasing and perfect will of God is.
Because you should be as minded as Christ Jesus was.
But natural man does not accept what is of the Spirit of God; because it is foolishness to him and he cannot recognize it because it has to be judged spiritually. The spiritual person, on the other hand, judges everything, but nobody judges him; 16 for "who has known the mind of the Lord to teach him?" But we have the mind of Christ.
So that we destroy reasoning and capture every height that rises against the knowledge of God and every thought for obedience to Christ.
On the other hand, be renewed in the spirit of your mind.
For the rest, you brothers, everything that is true, what is honorable, what is just, what is pure, what is lovable, what is benevolent, what is any virtue or something worthy of praise!
As an act of my will, I give God control over my appetite and eating habits; I don't eat more than my body needs. My body's metabolism works perfectly. I am slim.
Nor should you seek what to eat or what to drink; and don't worry!
Therefore I say to you: Do not worry about your life, what you should eat and what you should drink, nor your body, what you should wear! Isn't life more than food and the body more than clothing?
Whether you eat or drink or do anything - do everything for the glory of God!
But he answered and said: It is written: "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God!
Because the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but justice, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Do not work for the food that is perishable, but for the food that remains forever that the Son of Man will give you; because God the Father has confirmed this!
Everything is allowed to me - but not everything is useful! Everything is allowed to me - but I don't want to let anything rule me!
But take care of yourself that your hearts are not weighed down by intoxication and intoxication and worries of life, and that day comes suddenly over you!
My feelings are under the control of the Holy Spirit. I am gentle, kind and patient.
The long-suffering is rich in insight, but the irascible commits great folly.
A gate allows all his displeasure to run free, but a wise man holds him back.
So now, as God's elect, saints and loved ones, warm compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, long-suffering.
Whoever holds back his words has knowledge, and whoever is cool-minded is a wise man.
If you are angry, do not sin; the sun will not go down over your anger! Don't give the devil room either!
Insight slowly makes a person angry1 and it is an honor for him to overlook offenses.
The ornament of man is his goodness, and a poor man is better than a man who cheats.
By enduring each other in love with all humility and gentleness, with long-suffering
We were lovingly in your midst, as a nursing mother cares for her children.
But a servant of the Lord should not argue, but be gentle towards everyone, able to teach, patient in enduring malice; with gentleness, he is supposed to reproach the unruly whether God should not repent them to know the truth.
All bitterness and anger and anger and shouting and blasphemy be removed from you together with all malice. But be kind and merciful to one another and forgive each other, just as God forgave you in Christ.
