Routine and consistency is good. It keeps us grounded and honestly, I crave routine especially when we have been on the road for a while, but we have to watch out on routine causing complacency in our life.
For instance, do you have a test coming up? Or an important meeting? Or are you training for a marathon?
All of this we would consider part of our routine of life in preparation for these things, but ask yourself: Is God in any of these mundane things of your life?
Give your best to the Lord.
Give yourself time to prepare well for the test because you want to give HIM your best.
Make it to the meeting on time with everything in hand because you want to give HIM your best.
Run with perseverance and dedication because you want to give HIM your best.
Are you living this life for you alone? Or are you living your life for HIM?
After all, He gave us this life, so shouldn’t we honor Him by giving HIM our best.
Do not fall into the trap of allowing your routine and consistent life to be mediocre.
“By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man… And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead.” –Hebrews 11:4
Be extraordinary for HIM.
Just like Abel did, give your best to the Lord in all that you do.
