Episode Info:

In Paul's list of the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5 one fruit is clearly overlooked compared to the others: self-control. Though looking through the self-help section of the book store shows how in vogue focus on self-control is, godly self-control has little to do with the self-advancement of a self-help book or it wouldn't be a Fruit of the Spirit of God.

Recently Drew Dyck endeavored to make self-control a bigger part of his life. This involved research into how self-control works in our brains, and what self-control means in the Bible. In the process Drew wrote a book I found to be incredibly insightful so we got together to talk through what self-control is, why it's valuable, and how you can move toward having more of it.

Links from the episode:

—Drew Dyck's book on self-control titled Your Future Self Will Thank You. Highly recommended.

—Drew's two previously released books Yawning at Tigers and Generation Ex-Christian.

—You can find Drew on Twitter @drewdyck, as well as the podcast host @tylerbraun.
