Be ready to do the right thing.
We start with a crucial moment from Jesus’ life, found in Luke 4:1-13. After Jesus’ baptism, He went to the wilderness to fast and spend time with God and prepare for ministry. While Jesus was in the wilderness, the Devil tempted Him. Jesus was prepared for this. Even though Jesus was tired and hungry, Jesus used what He knew from Scripture to fend off the temptation.
Be ready to do the right thing. When it comes to self-control, it’s important to understand the moments when having self-control might be difficult. It’s also important to have a plan for when those moments might happen. We pray that kids will leave knowing they can trust God to help them show self-control.
