Day 10 of 21
Discipline is not a bad word.
If you follow me on social media (I follow a lot of you too!), you may have noticed a tangent I recently had about this very topic.
Some people think the word DISCIPLINE is a bad word.
They roll their eyes.
They laugh it off.
They belittle their capabilities.
They glory in laziness.
Understanding the NEED for discipline is easy, but leading a disciplined life can be hard for most of us.
... another TRUTH BOMB ...
"As Christians, we are instructed to lead disciplined lives, and when we behave in undisciplined ways, we live outside God's will."
God doesn't reward laziness.
No one likes to talk about laziness
But it can be unlearned.
Dive into these scriptures today and let God teach you:
- Hebrews 12:11
- Proverbs 10:17
- 2 Peter 1:5-6
- 1 Corinthians 9:27
- Matthew 7:20
- 2 Corinthians 12:9
Do you ever feel that way (what I shared in the video)?
But it's liberating to know that God doesn't need us to be PERFECT. He just needs us to show up, give our best and give Him the glory.
Have you been trying to "do" everything by yourself in the name of "working hard"? Remember, no matter how disciplined we are, it will NEVER be as productive as when we allow God to take the reigns.
Comment below and tell me how you can be better disciplined!
