LACK OF DISCIPLINE:

Proverbs 5:23”He will die for lack of instruction, And in the greatness of his folly he will go astray.”


Towards the end of this year, here comes a warning regarding your finances! Billionaires are committing suicide today because of lack of discipline in their finances and various other factors also constitute their failure.  Since I had worked for a multinational bank and was also attached to the credit card section, I have watched the haphazard attitude of people towards expenses, well, they are not the uneducated ones but the well-educated, multi-skilled people are the ones who have multiple credit cards and most of them have crossed their credit card limits. Sad.  There are bunch of others who fall to sales talk and buy things that they do not want.  Discipline your desire friends.  There’s a brutal warning in the above scripture which says, “he will die for lack of discipline..”


I think of Judas Iscariot as I write this, he failed to discipline his expenses, he had a very important portfolio of ‘finances’ to maintain while serving Jesus in His ministry but his end was miserable because he opened himself to the devil, read John 13:27” Satan then entered into him(Judas Iscariot). Therefore Jesus *said to him, "What you do, do quickly."

Friend, things don’t happen quickly and speedily, you have a long time to think, but if you have a wicked heart to cheat, manipulate, betray and embezzle funds then satan is ready to take you over  his side.  Caveat!  When you go to purchase high end products in electronic stores, you can find guys from finance companies with their ‘counters’ there ready to offer you credit, they have their sales guys to lure you into their web and all the other documents are ready with them, they would talk and walk you into buying something beyond your means and thereby you end up in a mess.  Discipline yourself to say ‘no’ to unnecessary EMI (equal monthly installments) and  be content with what you have. Apostle Paul said 1 Timothy 6:10 to be: “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”  This message is prophetic for someone out there!

Proverbs 6:23”For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching is light; And reproofs for discipline are the way of life.”
