Discipline

Discipline

Forgoing the immediate to guarantee the ultimate.

It’s saying “no” now so you can say “yes” later. Like the rails beneath a train, the disciplines we build into a young person's life enables him or her to harness all the many potentials God has built into that child.  Train tracks confine a train, but in so doing, empower it to do an enormous amount of good for people and the marketplace.  A train that leaves its rails is called a "train wreck." Train wrecks are a mess. So are the lives of people who don't have disciplines built into the core of their character.  Grace based parents and churches love kids enough to do the hard work of building tracks for their potential.
