Did you ever wonder why as a child you were subjected to certain rules and regulations? You might have felt as though your parents or guardians were being kill joys for no reason. More than likely were trying to teach you self discipline in the process.
They may have told you to ride your bicycle only within the yard and not out on the road. They did it out of love for you to keep you from the potential dangers you may not have realized, to cultivate self discipline.
It’s the same reason why there are speed signs on the road; and other road rules to keep you from getting involved in accidents. God loves you so much that He disciplines you. He teaches you to have self discipline yourself to protect you and lead you towards your destiny.
The Bible tells us in Proverbs 25:28, “He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls.“
A lack of discipline in your marriage can lead to unwanted consequences such as heart break, divorce, etc. A lack of discipline in the market place can lead to losing out on business and potentially losing your job.

I learned this all too well in my high school years. As juniors we were taught to run everywhere that we were sent to. I remember the emphasis that was placed on respecting seniors and school teachers.

In this podcast we are going to discuss the importance of self discipline and why you must cultivate it so you can be successful in life.
