"To learn, you must love discipline.” Everyone who has committed themselves to life-long learning knows that it takes discipline to submit to the process. We must give ourselves over to the process of reading, studying, and spending time with those who are already where we want to be. If we want to grow we must embrace the discipline required for development.
As we seek to walk down God’s desired path for our lives, we will inevitably get off course from time to time and we will need course corrections. Without these corrections we might make it to the end of the road – the end of our lives – and find out that we arrived at the wrong destination. These course corrections are purposeful and very necessary. None of us are perfect.
So what does this mean to you today? It means that you are human and your humanity brings with it a certain level of imperfection. You are not always right, you don’t know it all, and you must resist the prideful impulses to believe that you do. Learn to love discipline and submit yourself to the process of life-long learning in God. It’s never too late to make the change that changes everything!
Proverbs 12:1 (NKJV) Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.
