Are you practicing enough?
Really practicing it?
Practicing something the correct way can mean the difference between results that are simply good or really fantastic.
Do you gather with the Body of Christ, His Church, and study God’s Word?
Do you practice hospitality?
Pretty much everything we need to practice is mentioned in the Bible.
Maybe we need to show love.
Or be more compassionate.
Or take better care of our bodies.
Or increase in patience.
Whatever it is, these are the times available to us to practice it.
It’s good to study.
But what good does it to study, unless you also put what you learn into practice?
Practice requires mindfulness.
When you need to practice something, practicing it might not come easy, early, or often.
What hinders you?
Procrastination, laziness, not weighing the consequences, having too much to do, e.t.c., ...
At times, we might need to remember our place in life.
There are a thousand things and more you could practice.
Get focused. Narrow it down.
Take on the top priority. Whatever it is.
And keep going. Whatever it takes.
And keep on practicing!
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
