Spiritual H.A.B.I.T.S.

I did an book search and found close to 15,000 titles about the word habits. We are all as they say, creatures of habit, who do most things habitually. Think about it…
When preparing a peanut butter and jelly sandwich which goes on the top layer, peanut butter or jelly?
When you store your socks in a drawer do you roll them up or fold them flat?
When you replace the toilet paper (you guessed it) does the paper roll over or under the spool?
All of these things you do, you do habitually. Our habits shape our lives. Think about this…
Why is it that some people are more effective than others? Why is it that some people accomplish more? Reach their goals? Soar to greater heights? Get more out of life than other people? The answer is, effective people are committed to habits that ineffective people are unwilling to commit to.
Why is it that some Christians are more dynamic than other Christians? Why is it that some Christians seem to grow more, they seem to have more answered prayers, more of God's blessing on their life. Same answer. Effective Christians commit themselves to things that ineffective Christians are unwilling to commit themselves to.
It has been said that you will become what you are committed to. You become the end result of the habits you do each and every day.
What Spiritual H.A.B.I.T.S. do you need to establish this year?
H. Have a Daily Quiet Time with God
A. Accountability with another believer
B. Bible Memory (Start with your Scripture Verse of the Year)
I. Involve yourself on a ministry team
T. Tithing (giving 10% of your income)
S. Study the Bible in a Small Group
Developing these Spiritual HABITS will help you to have a more purposeful and productive 2017.
Your pastor and partner in ministry,
