What people would call prayer, reading the Word, fasting, fellowship, worship, etc.. as “spiritual disciplines”, I do not.

I do not think the goal of those were to make me more spiritual.

Or more disciplined at that.

I call those things “Love Disciplines” because I believe that those are the tools and disciplines that Jesus has given us to grow our love for Him.

Sure it’s just an issue of semantics, but I find that distinction to be be a helpful reminder of why I engage in those activities in the first place–it’s because I want to love Jesus by praying to Him, reading His Word, fasting, etc…
