Self-control isn’t very popular these days. Every day, all day – buy this, eat that, go here; do what you want when you want it. You don’t have to think about the consequences. But, shouldn’t it be different for Christians? On this week’s episode of indoubt, we’re joined by author, Drew Dyck, and we’re talking about self-control, brain science, and Christianity. In the habits that we’ve formed and the goals that we set for ourselves, willpower and self-control play a huge part in the follow-through. You’ll hear Joshua and Drew discuss the problems that can come up when we’re too hard on ourselves in our attempts to achieve our goals and the importance of taking time to root ourselves in Christ first and foremost.
