1 Peter 1:13 (NLT)
So think clearly and exercise self-control. Look forward to the special blessings that will come to you at the return of Jesus Christ.

Exercising self-control is critical to achieve success in every area of our lives. We, as the church, are called to be holy and we need self-control to do it. Even though we cannot become holy on our own, we have God's grace to help us, and His Spirit has already made us holy (1 Peter 1:2 NLT). Nevertheless, we have to do our part, which is to think clearly before we act, and to exercise (practice) self-control.

At home, for example, you can exercise self-control by watching what you eat and not over eating, by exercising regularly, by turning off the TV when there are shows you shouldn't be watching, and by spending time with the Lord, among other things. At work, you can exercise self-control by not overworking, by controlling our temper in difficult situations, and by not participating in office gossip.

Therefore, practice self-control on a daily basis and look forward to the reward and special blessings you will receive when Jesus comes back.
