Now it’s your turn

  

Do you engage in Bad Habits?

   

Habit
a settled or regular tendency or practice, esp. one that is hard to give up

Here’s what the Bible says about habits

Now I’m alert to God’s ways;
I don’t take God for granted.
Psalm 18:21

Be glad, good people!
Fly to God!
Good-hearted people,
make praise your habit.
Psalm 64:10

You’re one happy man when you do what’s right,
one happy woman when you form the habit of justice.
Psalm 106:3

Slack habits and sloppy work
are as bad as vandalism.
Proverbs 18:9

16 You know well enough from your own experience
that there are some acts of so-called freedom
that destroy freedom.
Offer yourselves to sin, for instance,
and it’s your last free act.
But offer yourselves to the ways of God
and the freedom never quits.
17 All your lives you’ve let sin tell you what to do.
But thank God
you’ve started listening to a new master,
18 one whose commands set you free
to live openly in his freedom!
Romans 6:16-18

19 It is obvious what kind of life develops
out of trying to get your own way all the time:
repetitive,
loveless,
cheap sex;
a stinking accumulation of
mental and
emotional garbage;
frenzied and
joyless grabs for happiness;
20 trinket gods;
magic-show religion;
paranoid loneliness;
cutthroat competition;
all-consuming-yet-never-satisfied wants;
a brutal temper;
an impotence to love or be loved;
divided homes and divided lives;
21  small-minded and lopsided pursuits;
the vicious habit of depersonalizing everyone into a rival;
uncontrolled and uncontrollable addictions;
ugly parodies of community.
I could go on.
This isn’t the first time I have warned you,
you know.
If you use your freedom this way,
you will not inherit
God’s kingdom.
Galatians 5:19-21

Pursue the things over which Christ presides.
Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground,
absorbed with the things right in front of you.
Colossians 3:2

Make sure you don’t take things for granted
and go slack in working for the common good;
share what you have with others.
God takes particular pleasure in acts of worship
—a different kind of “sacrifice”—
that take place in kitchen and
workplace and
on the streets.
Hebrews 13:16

People conceived and brought into life by God
don’t make a practice of sin.
How could they?
God’s seed is deep within them,
making them who they are.
It’s not in the nature of the God-begotten
to practice and
parade sin.
1 John 3:9
