Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. ~ Hebrews 12: 7-8
Examine any elite athlete who rises to the top of his field and you will find 10,000 hours of sweat, training, failure, recovery, and discipline.
The lessons we learn in failure is what inches us toward success. Discipline is what makes us better.
God demands discipline of our commitment to Him. Failures will come, but discipline is what pulls us through.
Without the disciplines of faith and without God we just seem to sputter and stall. Be disciplined with Study, Worship, Accountability, Prayer, and Service.
