Bible Verses about Self-control

  • A man without self-control
    is like a city broken into and left without walls.
  • For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
  • For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
  • Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
    and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
  • But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
  • Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger.
  • Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
    and those who love it will eat its fruits.
  • No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
  • So then let us not sleep, as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober.
  • The vexation of a fool is known at once,
    but the prudent ignores an insult.
  • For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age.
  • A fool gives full vent to his spirit,
    but a wise man quietly holds it back.
  • But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.
  • Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
  • Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.
  • For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
  • Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
    turn your foot away from evil.
  • Watch yourselves, so that you may not lose what we have worked for, but may win a full reward.
  • I have made a covenant with my eyes;
    how then could I gaze at a virgin?
  • Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
  • For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God.
