Learn To Be A Disciplined Person

 

 

 

Scripture: Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old. Buy truth and do not sell it; get wisdom discipline, and understanding. Proverbs 23: 22-23.

Do you consider yourself a disciplined person? Do you make to do lists and follow them? Strive to be on time for appointments or for all social events? Are you impatient with others you think are too slow?

Are you competitive?  I need not continue: if you possess these traits, already you are a disciplined individual. However, since impatience also is one of our traits, we might work at trying to be more understanding of others.

And all things are possible with God, but at age one hundred one years plus almost six months, still my type A personality is not very tolerant of those who are slow to perform daily duties.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I believe all things are possible with You; so please give me necessary faith to trust You in all circumstances.
