Does it really make a difference to others if I live a consistent life or not? How important is consistency to my role as spouse, parent, neighbor, and Christian?

1 Thessalonians 4:12People who are not Christians will respect the way you live . . .

Titus 2:7And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good deeds of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.

People may not accept your faith, but if your lifestyle is consistently kind and helpful, more often than not they are compelled to trust and admire you.

Psalm 119:44I will keep on obeying your law forever and forever.

1 Peter 4:19keep on doing what is right, and trust yourself to the God who made you, for he will never fail you.

When you drift away from consistent obedience to God, you lose your eternal perspective of why obedience is so important. Your daily choices become more selfish, and you will slide into being cynical and dissatisfied with your life.
