Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” 1 Corinthians 15:33 (NKJV)
Repeated practice becomes a habit. Whatever you do repeatedly you get to do involuntarily. This is what a habit is. Habit builds character. Character builds stability.
It’s been said that a gift or talent may get a person to some place but character keeps them there. We can learn and unlearn habits. We can unlearn bad destructive habits and learn good constructive habits.
All habits begin in the mind, so that’s where we should start in developing good habits.
Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV) As a man thinks in his heart so is he. Where the mind goes the man follows.
The Word of God is living, active, powerful, effective and energizing. It is able to touch and influence our spirit, mind and body- Hebrews 4:12. It can help us develop new, living, good, godly habits. Acts 20:32(NKJV) “Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.
As we meditate on God’s good Word our mind yields and submits to good thoughts which command good actions leading to good habits.
Here are some good habits that we can form; Fellowship and reading the Word-Luke 4:16; Prayer-Luke 5:16; Forgiveness is a good habit that God Himself has and therefore we should also have-Psalms 130:4; Praise is a good habit that we are commanded to make our own. -Psalms 64:10
