Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.” I think a certain amount of consistency is a worthy goal to shoot for, but if we get to the point of diluting the value of our work for the sake of consistency, I think it does rise to the level of foolishness.

For a good while now, I’ve been posting blogs on Christian subjects on Tuesdays and on whatever happens to be a current interest on Fridays. This has worked fairly well, but there have been many times I wanted to write on a Christian theme on Friday or strained to try think of something of interest on a Christian theme on Tuesday.

To keep this consistency from becoming foolish, I’m going to change that. I’m going to start writing on whatever seems important to me at the moment, whether it happens to be for a Tuesday or a Friday.

This doesn’t mean I won’t post on Christian subjects—just that I won’t limit myself to certain days for it. I may not write a Christian blog for two or three weeks and then write several in a row.

Probably somewhere down the line I’ll change the format again. I may even change the days of the week I post. But for now, it’s going to be Tuesdays and Fridays on whatever subject seems important at the time.

Have you found yourself bogging down trying to stay within a strict format? What did you do about it? How many times a week do you think new posts should come out? The readers want to know.

If you abide in Me and My word abides in you, then you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.
