Discipline & Discernment within Foundation

WEEK 6: Correcting Our Foundation

Day 37: May 10-11, 2015                  {Psalm 95:1-7}
Today is the energy of Discipline in Bonding. Sometimes it is more difficult to be right than to be wrong, harder to be cruel than to be kind. Today, set some boundaries. As hard as it seems, set them with human dignity and like water the Light will find its level. 
~Karen Berg

Discernment of proper actions is necessary in building anything that will last. The difference between a long lasting rock wall and a pile of rubble is in the accurate selection and placement of stones and meticulous application of mortar. This is also true in our lives: using careful discernment we can build the foundation for a long-lasting relationship, a robust congregation or a sturdy organization.

When we go through long periods of training, we are aiming for excellence. We examine what needs to improve, set goals, gather our determination and take aim. This process, whether sports or professional skills, music or accounting, is very similar. Discernment, applied well, leads to developing a strong foundation upon which a solid future can stand!

Scripture Verses For Day 37: 

Isaiah 11:3-4 (ESV)

3 And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord. He shall not judge by what his eyes see, or decide disputes by what his ears hear,

4 but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
and he shall strike the earth with the rod of his mouth,and with the breath of his lips he shall kill the wicked.

26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
