I was attracted to this Bible Study because “Personal Discipline” is an area I need to work on. I was not raised to “wait”. I was raised to “throw it away and buy new”. Things like that. So I thought this would be something good for me to check out.

The study involves twelve lessons such as: The Importance of Discipline, My Own Willpower for Discipline, Supernatural Godpower for Discipline and Self-Control and Other Disciplines. Each Lesson closes with “My Personal Discipline” allowing you to chart your thoughts. The study guide is 174 pages.

It is laid out like most Bible study guides with some sharing, looking up of Scriptures and writing your responses.

A few of the things that stuck out to me in the guide where:

It is not good enough for the believer to cease to do evil. The believer must also learn to do good.

You must diligently seek to develop divine discipline more than human discipline.

Persistence in faith is a source of personal strength and a witness to the world.

It has been said that “it takes five compliments to erase a criticism.” How true! We remember unkind comments for a long time.

The promises of God are great! While we cannot always depend on the commitment of others, the promises of God are trustworthy.

    Many years ago, Net sports activities book betting was risky.
    Do you wear your own football package when actively playing football along with friends on the park or even wear your shirt casually around town or perhaps
    is this your ritual to wear your groups colors when going down to the pub.
    Among those that came out in the wish list is a better line
    play, addition of team entrances, and crowd atmosphere.
