What is Your Baseline?

What is a baseline? A baseline is an initial set of critical observations or data used for comparison or a control. A baseline is a fixed point of reference that is used for comparison purposes.


Why am I talking about baselines? Ask yourself, what is my baseline for life?

In there is an article to help coaches in learning the personalities of their team. How are their team going to react in situations. Here is some reference points from that article:

  • A persona's baseline personality is how they tend to behave most of the time.

  • We should measure how far someone moves away from their baseline depending on circumstances (this is their personality variable).

  • How fast do they snap back to their baseline after stepping out of it.

What is our baseline for life? What is the fixed point we set our life on? Is it Jesus, the cornerstone of our faith? Isaiah 28:16 says "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who relies on it will never be stricken with panic." Is he the one we stay focused on and rely on?

Jesus our cornerstone

Is circumstance what we stay fixed on? When Peter was walking on water toward Jesus he got caught up in the storm and started to sink. Jesus immediately helped him up when he asked for help. Jesus asked him why he doubted though. Circumstances try to move our focus. Try to become our baselines in life. If we have something happen to us that is not right we often become bitter. A lot of peoples baselines is that, bitterness. It always comes down to what someone has done to them before, instead of looking at the possibilities now. Circumstances are always changing.

People are always changing. Is a person a baseline for you? Are you fixed on what they will do, to determine how you will live your life? Are you letting another person's negative attitude determine your attitude for the day? Are you letting their mood and perspective affect yours?

It all comes down to your perspective. The only thing you are in control is how fast do you hold to the baseline of the Word? Do you hold to it like your depends on it? Because it does. "Where your treasure is where you heart is." What is your treasure in life in life. What is your cornerstone? What is your foundation?
