“Whoever loves discipline
loves knowledge,
but whoever hates
correction is stupid.”

—Proverbs 12:1 NIV

“Discipline” is a word that is pregnant
with meaning. We can use the
expression “being disciplined” to mean
that one shows self-restraint and has
regulated his or her life in such a way
that there is order and that one’s life is
productive. We can also talk of “being disciplined” to mean that one
is being punished by external forces or agents. Parents discipline their
children in an attempt to help them develop that self-restraint or
discipline which is necessary for them to function well. In a spiritual
context, discipline is likewise pregnant with meaning. There are a
variety of practices which might be termed “disciplines,” such as
fasting, praying, and obedience, which deepen our spiritual lives
and help us develop the proper self-restraint in the spiritual realm.
Self-restraint is such an important character trait that without it
life becomes chaotic. People who cannot restrain themselves find
themselves addicted to drugs, incarcerated, and without the material
resources to sustain their own lives. The religious disciplines
are helpful in training people to be autonomous, self-restrained
members of society, but many of us have forgotten how to do these
things, which is why having a spiritual mentor or guide is important.
Over the coming weeks, we will examine a variety of spiritual
disciplines, including meditation, fasting, praying, and study, as well
as simplicity, service and submission. Reflect on areas of your own
life where you need to be more disciplined.
– Christopher Simon
