Again and again I sent all my servants the prophets to you. They said, “Each of you must turn from your wicked ways and reform your actions; do not follow other gods to serve them. (Jeremiah 35:15 NIV)
The Miriam-Webster dictionary defines a habit as a behavior pattern acquired by frequent repetition or physiologic exposure that shows itself in regularity or increased facility of performance; an acquired mode of behavior that has become nearly or completely involuntary; a manner of conducting oneself.
If we examine our lives, how many habits do we have? If you really think about it, it can become mind boggling. I guess, depending on how old you are, you have a lifetime of acquired habits that have been formed by conditioning. The condition of your childhood, the condition of your health, the condition of your socio-economic surroundings, the condition of your level of education, etc.. The things and people that are around us impact us. The repetitive things are the things that eventually become habits with us.
