Anyone who lives on milk, being still and infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about it righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil. HEBREWS 5:13, 14, NIV
When my wife and I got married, we took a cruise to the Bahamas for our honeymoon. Each day the boat stopped on a different island. One day we spent the day at a beach, another day we spent exploring an island we had stopped at. At one of our four stops we decided to rent a scooter big enough to carry both of us, in order to see more of the island. With helmets on, we left to explore the island. There was one challenge that made the day a little more interesting-they drive on the left side of the road. Of course, North Americans drive on the right, but there are a handful of countries in the world where people drive on the left, such as the United Kingdom, Australia, several African nations, and of course, the Bahamas.
Naturally, I was extra careful driving around the island. I was amazed at how habits from and we get so used to things being a certain way, and then we have to change-it’s hard. My instinct was to be on one side of the road, but now this had to change. Adapting to the new situation was important, otherwise we could get hurt. Interestingly, by the end of the day I was getting use to driving on the left.
Habits are formed when you do something often. Some habits are good and some are bad. Do you need to break a dab habit? Do you want to add a good new habit? Check our Bible verse today. It says babies are in the habit of drinking only milk. But as they grow and mature, little by little they will from new habits, such as eating solid food. It’s the same for us. Try to stop your bad habit, but substitute it with a new good one and pray that God will help you to be consistent. Before you know it, your new habit will fell natural!
