 In 2016, over the course of one week, three headlines caught the author’s attention: Thirty Percent of Americans Obese, One-Third of Americans Don’t Have One Dollar in Savings, and One in Four Americans Mentally Ill.

Might it be that in the long over-looked ninth fruit – the fruit of sel-control – we might find biblical help for our appetites, our finances, and our mental health?
