Bible Verses about Self-control

  • Like a city breached, without walls,
    is one who lacks self-control.
  • For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.
  • For this very reason, you must make every effort to support your faith with goodness, and goodness with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with endurance, and endurance with godliness, and godliness with mutual affection, and mutual affection with love.
  • One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
    and one whose temper is controlled than one who captures a city.
  • By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things.
  • You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, 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 testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.
  • So then let us not fall asleep as others do, but let us keep awake and be sober.
  • Fools show their anger at once,
    but the prudent ignore an insult.
  • For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all, training us to renounce impiety and worldly passions, and in the present age to live lives that are self-controlled, upright, and godly.
  • A fool gives full vent to anger,
    but the wise quietly holds it back.
  • But I punish my body and enslave it, so that after proclaiming to others I myself should not be disqualified.
  • Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
  • Athletes exercise self-control in all things; they do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable one.
  • For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of 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.
  • Be on your guard, so that you do not lose what we have worked for, but may receive a full reward.
  • I have made a covenant with my eyes;
    how then could I look upon a virgin?
  • Do not deprive one another except perhaps by agreement for a set time, to devote yourselves to prayer, and 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 fornication;
    that each one of you know how to control your own body in holiness and honor,
    not with lustful passion, like the Gentiles who do not know God.
