A 4-Week Unit on Self-Control
(Part of our Crossroads 7th-12th Grade Curriculum)
Suggested Calendar: May 9-30
Have you ever heard the expression "that guy has no chill"? It usually refers to someone who reacts quickly, saying and doing whatever first pops in their mind without any regard to the consequence. In other words, it looks like someone with no self-control.
In today's social-media world, many times we forget that our comments and messages matter. Self-control requires plugging into a wise power source allowing us to filter our words and actions.
This month, we will explore that power source and other important wisdom found in the book of Proverbs and in the lives of our Orthodox saints.
“A person without self-control is like a city whose walls are broken through.” Proverbs 25:28.
