“So get rid of every filthy habit and all wicked conduct. Submit to God and accept the word that he plants in your hearts, which is able to save you.” (James 1:21)
We are not born with habit. The reason we call it habits is because they are things we do repeatedly under the same circumstances or conditions. Habits are either acquired or learned and then the only way we can get rid of them is to unlearn them. Truthfully, it is not easy to get rid of a habit because it is already part of you, it is like something you are addicted to or your normal response to something. If you want to get rid of the habits (bad), you have to learn the good, godly ones. For example, habit of speaking foul words, you can get rid of the habit by saying the good word consciously.
Your habit portrays you. People define you by your habit. If you have an unpleasing habit, in your place of work, you might be losing some opportunities because from your habits people will believe you won’t be able to handle a project or a position. You need to call on Jesus to help you change your habits and start new habits today, keep on practicing them till they become part of you.
