A Broken Wall

Proverbs does not talk nearly so much about how to make right decisions as to how to become the kind of person who makes right decisions. We now come to self-control. A man or a woman without self-control is not going to live a wise life, not going to make wise choices, and is going to mess up their lives and the lives of people around them.

What do we learn from these passages in Proverbs about self-control? Three things. We learn the problem of self-control. We learn something about the principle of self-control. Then, last of all, we learn the practice of self-control, how we do it.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on November 28, 2004. Series "Proverbs: True Wisdom for Living". Scripture: Proverbs 18:10; 23:19-21; 25:28; Titus 2:11-14.
