There is a difference between a discipline and a practice. A discipline is a pathway leading to a goal. A practice are the exercise done along that pathway to the goal. In high school I took up the discipline of basketball with the goal being to earn a scholarship to college. The practices I incorporated in that discipline were doing Maravich drills for ball handling, shooting jump shots from the top of the key on a 12′ rim to increase my range and shot arc, and dribbling through an obstacle course on my patio to increase court vision.
Embarking on a discipline requires a decision. We have to be intentional about the journey in order to achieve its end, our goal. What disciplines have you decided to embark on in your life so far? What goals have you pursued through those disciplines? What practices did you have to incorporate into your life to maintain that discipline and achieve that goal?
Do you have any spiritual goals? Every goal has a discipline, a pathway, designed to get you to the goal. Define your spiritual goals and you will be well on your way to identifying what spiritual disciplines you need to embark on in your life.
Perhaps you are already engaged on a spiritual pathway, walking out a spiritual discipline with a specific goal in mind. If so, what is that spiritual discipline you are already walking out? When did you make the decision to embark on that discipline. How are you measuring your progress along the way?
