Habits are a funny thing. Old ones are hard to break, new ones are hard to form, well good ones are hard to form, bad ones seems to happen naturally. My last post was over two weeks ago, I had the intention to post everyday. That statement is an example of both breaking a bad habit and forming a new good habit. The bad habit is wanting to do something but not getting it done, the new habit is writing a post everyday.
So I am trying a new method, not sure how it will work out but the world will see :-)
Here's a hint:
1st Corinthians 7:23-24 tell us "All of you, slave and free both, were once held hostage in a sinful society. Then a huge sum was paid out for your ransom. So please don't, out of old habit, slip back into being or doing what everyone else tells you. Friends, stay where you were called to be. God is there. Hold the high ground with him at your side"
I need to get back to where I was called.
one last note about habits...
a convent caught fire in the middle of the night, the nuns woke up in the smoke on the second floor and pondered what they should do. One of them suggested they take off their robes, tie them together and then use them to climb down out of the window to safety. So, they decided this was the best thing to do and proceeded, upon arriving on the ground they redressed and then called 911.
In the aftermath, with the building smoking a reporting asked one of the nuns if it was true that they disrobed and used their garments to climb out of the window? The nun confirmed this was true to which the reporter asked, "given the state of disrepair of your robes were you worried about them tearing as you climbed out?" "Not at all," replied the nun " as you know old habits are hard to break"
bad pun, good point. But remember Matthew 19:26b "With God all things are possible"
