Lifetime Achievement

To follow up on yesterday's blog: How do you work to make sure you aren't a one-hit wonder?
  • Consistent prayer--even when the words don't flow smoothly
  • Thoughtfully reading the Word--even when it's a struggle to get through a passage
  • Volunteering--even when it's difficult to maintain the commitment and you wonder if you're making an impact
  • Being patient with your children instead of being rash with your words
  • Thinking the best of your spouse instead of assuming the worst
  • Pursuing discipline in all areas of your life--even when it's the last thing you want to do
  • Honoring God by giving your best effort in your job--even if it's not a job you want to be in
  • Waiting patiently for the answer to prayers you have been faithfully praying for a long time
  • Maintaining integrity when no one else is watching you & there's no way any one would find out
Faithfully developing our character happens over a lifetime of discipline and gives us the opportunity to be an influence for more than just one brief moment.
