The truth is, most often people need to be reminded rather than taught. In other words, comfort comes, peace comes, and security comes from knowing what you know better.
Take a child, their security and sense of well-being comes from the constant repetition of mom and dad consistently being there for them. Alter that regularity and problems begin to surface.
Healthy living comes, not by running a marathon once in your life, but by the faithful repetition of healthy habits over a long period of time.
This principle can be demonstrated with a snowball that begins rolling down a mountain over and over and over—eventually the repetition turns the little snowball into a major avalanche.
In the same way, if you hope to make a major impact in this life it is going to require more than fifteen minutes of fame or being a one hit-wonder; you’re going to have to be consistent over a long period of time; you’re going to have to keep repeating yourself.
- The ONE THING today: Be sure to repeat yourself a lot today; but please make sure it’s something worth repeating.
Genesis 41:32 (NKJV)
32 And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.
