Discipline is one of the most hated terms in our times. If you want to put a stop to mediocrity, replace excuses with fresh determination . . . you need discipline.
From Colossians 1:10-12: So that you may lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God. May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from His glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light.”
