Week 4 Discipline: Discussion Questions

Hello dear sisters! I hope you have been enjoying week 4 of our study. I think this was a much needed lesson for many of us. Nancy says on page 90, “According to the Bible, self-control is more of a heart issue than a matter of personal management.” “Without self-control, we have little or no defense against sin and temptation.” Self-control doesn’t come natural, we need to be trained. We need to be self-controlled in our, thoughts, temperament, tongue, time, temple and treasure.

Here are some discussion questions. You can share your thoughts and comments here, write them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you.

  1. What do you think it means to be sound-minded?
  2. Identify the false beliefs that lie behind the self-control challenge you identifies on page 94.
  3. According to Romans 12:2, how can you combat unsound thinking?

We have a group of women meeting on Monday evening to do this very same study. We had several sisters who were unable to make our meeting on Monday so we did not do a video taping for this week.

True Woman 201: Week 4 Discipline

Hello sisters welcome to week 4, Discipline. Wow! I don’t know about you but this was definitely a good lesson for me!! On page 87 the authors said, “The design element we’re going to study this week is discipline. A True Woman knows how to exercise restraint and how to make wise, intentional choices in her habits and daily routines. Those disciplines and choices flow out of a heart and mind that are under the Spirit’s control. The grace of God and the work of Christ on the cross give her the I-will-power to say “yes” to the good , and the I-won’t -power to say “no” to the bad.

I found the marshmallow  study on day one very fascinating. I wish I could go back to that age and see what I would have done…or maybe not lol. During our Monday night discussion we talked a lot about our minds and having a reined-in mind, a sound mind and about “putting on the breaks“. I hope you take the time to consider those things and work through the 6 steps in day 5, Reflect on the situation, Ready yourself for action, Remember your commitment, Rely on the Holy Spirit, Replace wrong patterns with virtuous ones, and Resolve to keep pursuing a sophron life.

Once you’ve completed the homework for this week click here to watch the True Woman Week 4: Discipline.

Come back on Wednesday for our Discussion Questions. You can share your thoughts and comments with us here, jot them down in your book during your quiet time or discuss them with another sister doing the study with you. Please let us know how we can pray for you throughout the study. Have a great week!
