Yes, discipline can be learned.
When children are born, their world or focus is limited to just themselves. As they get older, they hopefully learn from those around them that the world is bigger than themselves and they are taught about selflessness, discipline, morality, and the salvation our Lord and Savior offers. We are responsible for teaching those around us (young and old) what we have learned relative to discipline. Do we need to be perfect to do this? No, just honest about our own faults and what we have experienced and learned over the years.
Questions for further thought:
1. Who has God put in your life to teach?
2. What does God want you to share?
Challenge: If you are struggling with God’s ask, pray and ask Him to show you how to get started. Then, take one step towards that goal.
