Work done uniformly well and on time should be the goal of every pastor. W.G.T. Shedd advises:

The religious character of the clergyman is strengthened as he “performs every clerical duty, be it in active or contemplative life, with punctuality, uniformity, and thoroughness. . . . The habit of doing work uniformly well and uniformly in time, is one of the best kinds of discipline  . . . . A thorough an punctual performance of pastoral duties, is a direct means of grace.”

–  William G.T. Shedd, Homiletics and Pastoral Theology. 11th ed. (Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1902), 338-339, 340.
