Two Pains, One Choice

 

Jim Rohn, the late great business philosopher said: “We must all suffer from one of two pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. The difference is discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons.”

 

As Kingdom believers and ambassadors of Christ in our culture, we are called to a high level of influence. To do so, we must learn the value of discipline.

 

Our Lord called us to be His disciples, a word closely associated with discipline

 

But what exactly is discipline? What does it consist of and what does it require? Is it really painful like Jim Rohn said?

 

In this week’s episode, we’ll look at the ingredients of a disciplined life for the believer and what it means to avoid a lifetime of regret. 

 

As you will see, we can’t avoid pain in life, but we can sure choose it. Ultimately, the choice is yours… every day!

  • Learn the full etymological meaning of the word discipline.
