Consistency is a trait we all share.
We want to be consistent with our decisions.
When we make a decision making a commitment to do something. We act in accordance with that commitment.
This is true for good decisions – those we perceive to work well. They have outcomes we are pleased with.
This is also true for bad decisions – those we perceive to not work out well. They have outcomes we are not pleased with.
The concept of commitment and consistency come into play for building a tribe for our ministry and evangelism.
