When we are disciplined and obedient to God’s commands, we will find peace and righteousness. Example: When we are disciplined about healthy living, we will experience better health. When we are disciplined about our study of the Bible, we will experience peace in the times of trouble as we are able to combat the trouble with what we know in the Bible to be true. The benefits of discipline always outweigh the outcomes of not being disciplined.
Questions for further thought:
1. What are some benefits you have received as a result of being disciplined?
2. How have those benefits encouraged you to develop new habits?
Challenge: Ask God to show you what new habit (discipline) you need to adopt and how you need to go about being disciplined to do it.
