Discipline and freedom go together

“The disciplined person is the person who can do what needs to be done when it needs to be done. The disciplined person is the person who can live in the appropriateness of the hour…. The disciplined person is the free person.” These words caught my attention. They are by Richard J. Foster in a book called Reasons to Be Glad.Used by permission of the publisher, World Wide Publications.

Many of us would like to accomplish more each day, but there are so many demands on our time that it sometimes seems impossible to fit everything into twenty-four hours. Yet we all know people who manage to stay on top of their work, have plenty of time for their families and friends, and even find opportunities to serve others in their churches and communities. We may wonder how they do it.
