Growing up, I took piano for years. With that came the saying from my teacher, “Practice. Practice. Practice.” She didn’t just expect it, she asked for proof. I had to log my piano practice time and then have my mom sign off on it. This teacher knew that 30-60 minutes a day on the piano was the only way to hone my skills.
As I’ve ventured along in life, I don’t practice the piano anymore and my skill level shows! However, there are new things I practice. And I’ve learned that those things you practice, whether good or bad, become a part of your natural being.
The habits that we sow in our lives are who we are or what we are becoming. With that in mind, take a look at what you are practicing.
Are you practicing speaking love?
Are you practicing being a servant?
Are you practicing writing?
Are you practicing the skills you want to hone?
Or maybe these are some things you practice . . .
Are you practicing bitterness?
Are you honing your skill of jealousy?
Are you exercising the right to be angry?
Examine what you are doing over and over, and you’ll see what will become a skill that defines your life.
Practice does make perfect. Define your perfect and practice that!
