That’s how habits are formed, both good and bad. Add a thread every day, and before long you can’t break it. Start developing a good habit by taking the first step, however small, in the right direction. Then keep at it until you’ve built up a routine that can’t easily be broken.
Romans 12:2 ESV – Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Proverbs 4:20-27 ESV – My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to those who find them, and healing to all their flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you.
Ephesians 5:1 ESV – Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.
