Discipline In Faith
Choosing behaviors to help me reach my goals
To practice Discipline I will:
- set my own limits
- not act impulsively
- walk away from things that aren’t right
- not equate desires with rights
- choose to build good habits
-Jill W Tomey
The world throws temptations at us daily, so it is important to stay focused on what God wants us to do. Self-control is a fruit of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23), so exercising discipline reflects our life in God. When we practice saying No to even little temptations, it builds our discipline for saying No to larger temptations. Prayer, attending worship services and meditating on the scriptures are all ways to build our discipline so that our actions are influenced by God.
This month, build your discipline by recognizing and resisting temptations of all sizes.
