Is forcing ourselves to face our dislikes the only way to increase our self-discipline? While exercises like this are probably more helpful than they sound, why not increase general self-discipline by advancing in spiritual self-discipline? Romans 13:14 says, "But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof." The active increase of spiritual discipline leads to denial of negative physical habits. Or, filling your life with Jesus Christ eliminates the room otherwise given to fulfilling unprofitable desires.  No disciplines are more important than the disciplines which cause you to be more filled with Jesus Christ. To develop the spiritual disciplines of prayerful Bible study, honest dependent praying, and consistent church attendance will naturally develop better overall self-discipline, even in menial areas.  --Troy Carlson
