We develop habits from the time we are little children. Some habits become so deeply engrained in us we face a huge challenge in changing. We usually avoid altering a habit until a crisis enters our life. We tend to stumble over some truth, but it takes a huge amount of effort and perseverance because it is hard to change.
Habits can be good; they can also be chains that bind us. According to the Bible, we are required to break bad habits and become a new person (Romans 6:16-18). Not many today are willing or diligent enough to take the path that requires difficult action. Although it does require effort and self-denial at times, the end result is always better. Just like physical healing after a habit bad for the body is stopped, our minds and hearts heal spiritually with a change of action toward God.
