https://youtu.be/n4RilipWZD0

Key Question
How does God free me from addictions and sinful habits?

Key Verse
For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. ~Titus 2:11-13 (NIV)

Discussion Question
Why is self-control a key virtue for Christian leaders and why is it so hard to come by for so many people?
How does the company we keep influence our ability to live a life of self-control?
How does pride impact our willingness to establish accountability in our lives and what can be done about it?
In what areas of your life do you struggle with self-control? What is one step you can take today to bring it under control? Who is one person you’d trust to walk the accountability journey with you?
