• Romans 7:15,18-19,24-25 (NIV)

    I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do….

    For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing….

    What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

    So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.

  • Notes

    Discipline is choosing between what you want NOW and what you want MOST.

    Choosing Discipline Over Regret

    • What do you want most?
    • What do you need to choose now to achieve what you want most?

    Talk It Over Lunch

    • What do you want most? Invite God’s guidance into your answer.
    • What goals could you set that would require you to rely on God’s strength and grace?
    • What would you need to do differently now to achieve the thing you want most?
