Self-Discipline


I thought this quote was funny, and yet somehow poignant (taken from Power in the Pulpit by Jerry Vines and Jim Shaddix):

“John Stott tells the story of a young preacher who did not study as he should.  He frequently bragged to his deacons that his messages were prepared between the time he left the parsonage in the morning and the time he arrived at the door of the church.  No wonder his deacons decided to buy him a new home five miles away!”
