Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll
 
We Need Discipline
by Charles R. Swindoll
 
Poverty and shame will come 
to him who neglects discipline, but he 
who regards reproof will be honored.
Proverbs 13:18
 
Discipline is one of the most hated terms of our times . . . right alongside patience and self-control. But have you noticed how often it comes up in the testimonies of those who win?
 
Here are some key uses of discipline:
No runner completes the training or a race without it.
 
No weight-loss program is maintained without it.
 
No human body is kept fit without it.
 
No mind is sharpened without it.
 
No temptation is overcome without it.
 
If you want to put a stop to mediocrity, to replace excuses with fresh determination and procrastination with tough-minded perseverance, you need discipline.
