One of the most important virtues of a leader is self-control. As Paul continues to expound the qualifications of eldership, he outlines two areas of restraint which are essential for spiritual leadership: appetite and emotions. This message explores the spiritual quality of inner control.

1 Timothy 3:3

not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money.
