Routine. Ritual. Sameness. Habit. For some, these words are part of the perfect language of death. You are the free spirit, blowing around with the winds of opportunity and change, making it all up as you go. Fine. But is there a chance you’d be able to accomplish all that, and much more, if you were more … boring in certain respects?
Here is the deal, there are certain things in our life that can net huge results, they can truly allow us to net huge results when done over a long period of time.
Take for instance working out. If you were to go to the gym 4-6 times a week, every week, your body would change for the better over time. If you were to read even a paragraph of scripture every 4-5 days a week, your spiritual life would change.
If we were to spend more time eliminating the things that hinder our walk with God, one thing at a time, or ability to become spiritual leaders would increase.
I know the fun thing is to always be changing and doing something new, but sometimes those things that we have to grind through day in and day out, pay our more than swinging for the fences.
