Each dad had a pretty good record with a few exceptions:
>He was really tired this morning so he decided to sleep in.
>Normally, he wouldn’t have considered allowing his daughter to go out with a guy like that, but she really wanted to.
>He hadn’t touched alcohol in 20 years, but he didn’t want to offend the neighbors when they offered him a beer at the picnic.
>He has avoided ungodly Internet sites ever since he got married, and only recently slipped a time or two.
>He has been a faithful, loving husband for 20 years and only recently was unfaithful once.
>His driving record was perfect until he fell asleep at the wheel, crossed the median, and slammed into a church van head-on.
Consistency through self-discipline is very important. The one who practices it will be known as reliable and trustworthy. Satan wants the exception. The problem is that the exception can often become a pattern or be disastrous just that one time.
“Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 15:58)
