Consider this...when thinking about Consistency

Recently, I’ve been thinking about “consistency.” Interestingly enough, I’ve been thinking of the second definition of the word, according to steadfast adherence to the same principles, course, form, etc.: There is consistency in his pattern of behavior. 
Consistency is tied to character. If someone does something good, or bad, in life/relationships just once in a while, that becomes their character and one would say they were “inconsistent” in their pattern of living. Consistency allows others around us to know what they can expect from us…and that’s good. Now, just to make it clear, I’m not thinking of perfectionism as our living; that’s impossible. But I am thinking of consistency.  
Here is a short list of benefits: 
  • Consistency in the “quality of the worship experience” makes it easier to invite friends…you don’t have to wonder if it’s going to be good or bad…
  • Consistency in our “financial giving” makes it easier to remember what belongs to the Lord, and who is first in our lives…
  • Consistency in our “eating and exercise” makes it easier to maintain good health…
  • Consistency in our “devotions and prayer” makes it easier to hear God speak
  • Consistency in our “living” establishes the story our life will tell…
Ask the Lord to help you become more “consistent” in the “pattern of living” that will bring out the best (and HIS best) in US!
HAPPY Wednesday,
Pastor Ken
