Read a couple of bible verses and a quote on consistency:

1 Corinthians 15:58: “Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lod knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain”

Galations 6:9: “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up”

Quote of unknown origin: “Consistency is what transforms average into excellence”

Really been thinking lately on consistency, not just in the family realm and physical fitness realm but in the spiritual realm as well. The unfortunate reality is that we live in a society now that de-values both hard work and commitment along with steadfast faithfulness. Don’t let that deter you from maintaining your consistency, especially in your walk with Jesus. As leaders of men, our families, our colleagues, etc. we are called to remain consistent in all aspects of our life but especially in our faithfulness. A consistent Christian scares our society to death, so let’s make them sweat!


John Doe finally got to experience my VQ from two years ago! Thought I would be nice and re-issue it for him.

Turns out muscle failure is REAL; 210 merkins, I can barely type this backblast today.

Some PAX got excited when they thought they heard me say “Circle Jerk”….It was really “Circle Merk” thanks Cavity Search for clearing that up.
