Hebrews 12:11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

In order to see results in our lives as we walk by faith, there needs to be discipline. Discipline is required in losing weight, running a successful company, and it’s required as we walk by faith.

Discipline is doing something when we don’t feel like it. When it comes to spiritual matters, it’s beneficial to consistently listen to the word of God when we don’t feel like it. It takes discipline to pray when we would rather play games. Discipline is necessary to say our confessions on a daily basis.

Will we still go to heaven without discipline? Absolutely, but think about the intimacy with God and promises from God we’ll miss out on because we weren’t disciplined.

Look past the immediate gratification of the flesh and magnify the long-term benefits of being disciplined.
