Ten Healthy Habits – Part 5

Ten Healthy Habits – Part 5

You can’t change your past habits. But you can change your future ones. 

Today, we will examine the final three 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 faithful witness for Jesus.

If you think about it, you promote many of the things you like; a good movie or restaurant, a great discount, your favorite vacation spot, or sports team, just to name a few. You might even drone on and on about your favorite dog breed. 

Promoting something means advancing, supporting, or encouraging participation in something or someone. In other words, when you promote your favorite whatever, you’re actually being a good witness for that thing.

What about Jesus? 

The Bible is full of commands that say we should be faithful witnesses and promoters of the Good News. Jesus said that we are to “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.” (Mark 16:15)

When we make being a witness for Jesus a habit in our lives, it changes the eternity of others. And that’s an excellent habit to get into.

I will be a person who cares about the next generation.

In my opinion, one of the saddest verses in the Bible is found in Judges 2:10-11. It says, “After that generation died, another generation grew up who did not acknowledge the Lord or remember the mighty things he had done for Israel. The Israelites did evil in the Lord’s sight and served the images of Baal.”

We have an awesome and wonderful responsibility to love and serve the next generation and make sure they never forget the good things God has done. 

It should be a habit in all our lives. Let me ask you. What are you doing to serve and care for the next generation? It’s time to make it a habit in your life.

I will be a person who doesn’t quit.

To quit is to give up and stop trying. Often, we have a hard time quitting the bad habits. But we’re excellent at quitting when we try to create good ones. 

Good things take time, and they are often challenging. That’s what makes quitting so enticing. It’s easy. 

Especially when we don’t see the instant results we were hoping for. Galatians 6:9 teaches us to “not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” 

God’s not a microwave. He often doesn’t give us instant results, even when we’re doing what is good. It takes time for a harvest to sprout. 

So, whatever good thing you’re close to quitting, don’t. Make faithfulness your habit even when it’s a bit rough. The best things always grow after a storm.
