The Right Tools

Saturday, September 14, 2019

This passage in Scripture spoke to me this morning: “All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness. Therefore, strengthen the hands that are weak and the knees that are feeble, and make straight paths for your feet, so that the limb which is lame may not be put out of joint, but rather be healed.” (Hebrews‬ ‭12:11-13‬ ‭NASB‬‬) Discipline. We tend to hate the word when hearing or reading it conjures up memories of spankings and other uncomfortable things we link to it. But discipline is so much more. Discipline is the fuel and determination needed for growth, maturity, attaining the goal and winning the prize. Discipline looks at the need, sees the tools available to meet the need, then deliberately and purposefully puts the tools to good use, winning the day. Returning here in the past week, after a long time away from community life and use of resource, and determining to use the tools Spark provides us, I quickly learned I was eating way more that I realized. Through discipline I learned something about myself that I needed to know and found the resources to do something about it. Discipline is good. It empowers us to live better lives and be our best self. Grasp hold of the tools you find for your need and, deliberately and purposefully making good use of them, have a great, victory day. I’m going to.
