One Discipline Leads to Many More
When I was in high school, I had a cousin that was very disciplined about working out. If he had a goal to do 20 push ups each day, he did it without fail. I remember how impacted I was by his ability to stay on track day after day. When I asked him how he managed to be so disciplined, he told me he had observed that if he was disciplined in one area of his life, it tended to help him in EVERY area of his life.
I do know this: the opposite is definitely true. If I don’t have at least one area in which I maintain self-discipline, every area of my life seems to be a struggle.
Proverbs 15:32 (NLT) says, “If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself”
I want to challenge you to pick just one area of your finances where you will practice absolute self-discipline all year long. It may be spending, saving, giving, working, investing, or resting. The area you choose should be one where you know you have been putting it off.
Now write down your daily, weekly or monthly goal and commit to do it, no matter what. I want to encourage you that this small step of becoming disciplined may be the biggest decision you make regarding next year. The Lord will be with you to give you the strength.
I want you to experience true financial freedom! I have seen God liberate thousands of people just like you, no matter what challenge you may be facing.
