“But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, fairhtfulness, gentleness, self-control; against. such things there is no law”
Those who have self-control will be rewarded
Self-control is the 7th fruit of the spirit & available to all believers who obey Christ.
Having self-control means keeping your promises, being loyal even when its hard, doing what you say you are going to do and being consistent and obedient.
Jesus wants us to do a good job when doing the things we are responsibilities for no matter who is watching. When we are not faithful to our responsibilities there are consequences.
In our story we learn that the servant who did as his master commanded is considered blessed and the servant who did not obey will be punished.
The faithful servant worked hard even when the master was not around to see.
