Dealing with Discipline

Passage: 1 Samuel 30:1–31

Bible Text: 1 Samuel 30:1–31 | Preacher: Dr. Bill Tenny-Brittian | Series: Walk Tall in Times of Injustice | Discipline comes in many forms and sizes, but let’s be completely honest … if we had a choice, we’d avoid all of it completely. We’re repeatedly reminded that self-discipline is not just a virtue, it’s part of the whole “be a Christian” package – which can be problematic in times of injustice. We rail against injustice and there’s a side of us that wants to just wade in there and administer a bit of it ourselves. But as we watch the news channels, it’s pretty clear there’s enough of that going on for all of us, but it doesn’t change our most visceral responses. Christians are expected to be more self-disciplined than the rest of the world – and David gave us a vision of what that might look like.
