Blessed are You, YHWH our Elohim, King of the universe, who cautions me concerning ‘over-indulgence’. This can take the form of eating, spending money excessively – clothes, shoes, etc. – spending inordinate amounts of time with other people (when my family has need of me), or lingering for hours on the internet. All of this is the direct opposite of the Ruach’s fruit of self-control, and reveals a lack of discipline in my life. I ask for YOUR help, my Father, in this contentious area, that I might be “filled with the fruit of righteousness, through יהושע [Yeshua] Messiah, to the esteem and praise of Elohim.” Amein.
