Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most. (Abraham Lincoln)
We may rightly complain about the lack of discipline in schools, the workplace, and even in our homes. But self-discipline is probably the area most in need of our attention. As Lincoln suggests, we usually succumb to the desire to have what we want and to have it RIGHT NOW. What we too often neglect to do is consider the wisdom of waiting.
We are waiting for the hope of being made right with God (Galatians 5:5a).
