So we must not grow weary in doing good, for in due time we will reap, if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 NET)
One of the believer's greatest struggles in his daily walk is consistency. To be consistent one must set a course and refuse to deviate from it.
Although Jesus modeled consistency, his disciples often failed to show it in their lives. Peter was a prime example of inconsistency. On one occasion he made the statement I will never deny you and then turned around and denied the Lord three times. How do we fare in this area of our lives?
We can learn a lot about inconsistency by studying the lives of Old Testament patriarchs like Abraham, Jacob, David, and Solomon. On the other hand Joseph, Moses, Nehemiah, and Esther lived consistent lives.
One of the best ways to live consistent lives is to make sure you keep the promises that you make.
Thought for the Day: God is consistent in keeping his promises.
