Habits of Grace


After my posts and think­ing about dis­ci­pline last week, on Sun­day I decid­ed to order Habits of Grace by David Math­is. It arrived yes­ter­day and the study guide that goes with it is set to arrive either tomor­row or Fri­day.
It’s a book that’s been on my radar for a while both for it’s sub­ject mat­ter, and if I’m being hon­est, it’s design. I’ve resist­ed buy­ing it in the past because I’m aware I already have a large pile of books to I’ve yet to read, but hav­ing spent some time in prayer, read­ing, and think­ing around this sub­ject I decid­ed it was time to get my fin­ger out and order it.
I’m look­ing for­ward to div­ing in over the next month, all to often it’s easy to start grind­ing things like dis­ci­pline in terms of hob­bies and pas­sions. As a Chris­t­ian ground­ing the desire for dis­ci­pline and self con­trol in God and my faith is of far greater impor­tance. Doing that is far eas­i­er to say than it is to do, and so I’m hop­ing that this book, along with build­ing momen­tum by writ­ing here on my blog will help that mus­cle of dis­ci­pline grow into more areas of my life.

  1. @philbowell That book has inter­est­ed me as well! I even own it. Unfor­tu­nate­ly I’ve been great at mak­ing excus­es: “I’ll read it with my wife.”, “I’ll read it when I have more time”, etc. I def­i­nite­ly need to just do it. See­ing your post inspired me to put it on top of the list.
