The last 14 days I have been reading a course in leadership. The course discusses what God says it takes to be a great leader. There has been a lot of great information but none better for me to hear than that of self discipline. Here it is.
“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”
2 Timothy 1:7 NIV
Self-discipline is needed to stretch us beyond our own comfort zones and areas of personal inertia. For some, the needed discipline will be more in the realm of the emotions; for others the focus of self-control will be in the realm of the mind or of the will.
And for me, it is both!
Have a great day!
