Ten Healthy Habits – Part 2

Ten Healthy Habits – Part 2

It’s time to start creating healthy habits in your life. Bad habits can keep you from achieving all God has in store for you, and no one wants that!

The secret to kicking bad habits is to create healthy ones. 

Today, we will look at two more of the Ten Healthy Habits. If you want to grow in your faith and achieve all God has for you, strive to master them.

I will be a person who serves others.

We live in a culture that constantly rates the service of others. You might give a hotel or restaurant three out of five stars. Maybe you’ve given a social media post a thumbs up or a thumbs down. A movie might get an 82% on Rotten Tomatoes.

We rate everything. But what about your life? If you were to look deeply and honestly at your life, how would you rate your service to others? 

Even better, how would people rate you?

Take a minute and answer these questions:

  • Would people say you are kind and considerate?
  • When someone is in need, do you go out of your way to help even when it’s inconvenient?
  • Would Jesus ever say of you, “Well done, good a faithful servant?”

I don’t know about you, but I feel convicted answering these few self-evaluating questions. 

Jesus gave us the secret to greatness when he said, “Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:26-28)

If you want to be more like Jesus, create the healthy habit of serving others. It’s great in God’s eyes.

I will be a person who is generous.

Do you practice generosity? Everyone wants to be generous, but the sad part is that most people who think they are generous aren’t.

If you were to take a moment and evaluate your life over the past week or month can you pinpoint certain situations where you practiced generosity? What does your giving look like?

If you haven’t been generous in the last thirty days, you don’t have a habit of generosity. That might sound kind of tough, I know. But a habit is something that occurs on a regular basis. And if you’re not giving regularly, it’s not a healthy habit.  

If this hasn’t been part of your life, it’s time to start a new habit of generosity.

The Apostle Paul told the church, “Since you excel in so many ways—in your faith, your gifted speakers, your knowledge, your enthusiasm, and your love from us—I want you to excel also in this gracious act of giving.” (2 Cor 8:7)

Do you know what “Excel” means? It means to be exceptionally good at it. God wants all his people to excel at this powerful spiritual discipline. And yes, giving is tremendously spiritual. It’s an act of faith and worship.

But generosity never happens by accident. You must choose to start being a giver. 

If you do, you’ll become more like God than ever before. He’s the most generous person in the universe. He gave you your life and the life of his son Jesus. Why? Because he loves you.

Love gives! 

The Ten Healthy Habits:

  1. I will be a person of prayer. 
  2. I will be a person who reads my Bible. 
  3. I will be a person who is generous.
  4. I will be a person who serves others.
