An inconsistent action is a consistent answer ….~ Stephan Labossiere
Man …. this quote truly spoke to me. I have been reading a book by Mr. Labossiere about finding the man God has for you, but we not gonna get into my love life… (at least not today , right? ) He was speaking about how some men tell you they don’t want a relationship, but they treat you like their girlfriend and want you to act like one. These men say they don’t want commitment , but limit who you can spend time with. Basically , they speak one thing and their actions say another. By doing this, Stephan tells us we can pretty much realize this man is consistently inconsistent and NOT SOMEONE you want to enter in a relationship with comfortably.
What I want to focus on is how easily we miss how people treat us because we focus so much on what they are saying. Eloquent words and poetic promises have hypnotized our ability to discern what people actually are doing.
In the body of Christ, we are speaking Bible but our actions aren’t lining up with the Word. We praise God and say we are waiting patiently, but people watch us anxiously pursuing what we claimed to be waiting on. We not only must be hearers of the word but doers. In a world drowning in social media sensationalism, people are starting to watch and criticize how we behave from behind the keyboard. This world is looking for authenticity. We have to be the light not just turn it on with our words….
Embrace consistency today! Overcome having fluent words but not a stable lifestyle to back up those words. Overcome inconsistency
Be consistently and authenticity YOU!!!
