Repetition, indeed, legitimizes
Sometimes (or oftentimes?), we grow tired of hearing the same principles and reminders over and over and over and over again (see what I did there?).
But maybe there is truth in the saying that a person who has practiced something a thousand times is more formidable than a person who once barely scratched the surface of a thousand things.
There are things in life that are indeed worth the grind. The key is for us to discern which is that thing that we are willing to pour repetitive hours over and over and over and over again. Pessimistically, it might seem an absurd Sisyphean task; but optimistically, in faith, the grind can accumulate into opportunities for us to grow and flourish.
John 21:15-19. Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time, “Do you love me?”
