Consider how consistency is the key to developing good habits. Yes, variety is the spice of life; sometimes we need to “mix it up.” However, there is value in repetition, i.e., trying to do the same thing in the same way, time after time after time. Strung together, good habits make for success, in both physical and spiritual endeavors.
Today I beat my previous best 10 km run. By “KEEPING IT S.T.E.A.D.Y.,” I was able to set two new personal records in the process: Fastest 10K = 51:08 and Fastest Average Pace = 5:06 min/km.
One of the blogs I regularly follow stressed the same theme. WayneStiles.com is a Bible Archaeology website dedicated to “Connecting the Bible and Its Lands to Life.” Today’s posting, available here, is entitled “15 Habits That Can Totally Transform Your Spiritual Life.”

Make the same decisions often enough and they become habits — powerful, God-given gifts to help you walk with God and stay healthy.” He offers some interesting observations and suggestions. Give it a gander, applying as usual the principle of Acts 17:11.
