Be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined.
H. Jackson Brown Jr. said, “Talent without discipline is like an octopus on roller skates. There’s plenty of movement, but you never know [where] it’s going.” Too many of us are torn in too many directions, and our self-discipline breaks down in the chaos.
British writer Lin Wills suggests that a disciplined life begins with our daily quiet time with the Lord. “The regular disciplining of ourselves to spend that quality time with God will reap great benefits, but there are times when we need more discipline than at others, depending on how many distractions there are, and how many other things are filling our minds at the time. The more we determine to press into God’s presence, the more we will want to do it.”
Leading a disciplined life requires training ourselves to be disciplined in our personal routines, to develop our spiritual skills, and to do what is needed to complete the task in front of us. Thank God for giving us all we need to be disciplined and to live a life of godliness.
We have everything we need within us to walk a disciplined, victorious walk with God. Lin Wills
