Breaking that habit

Posted · 2 Comments

“Habits are not designed to be ‘broken’ as the world believes. Instead, according to God’s Truth, habits must be replaced. Poor habits must be and can be replaced by good habits. It is not sufficient for the cigarette smoker to simply ‘break the habit’ after ‘detoxing’ from the physical dependence of nicotine. You must replace smoking cigarettes with something constructive. In the Bible, this is called ‘putting off’ and ‘putting on’ and it can be applied to many areas of life” (Mark Shaw, The Heart of Addiction, 26 see Eph. 4:22-24).
