“Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.” Jeremiah 13:23Text — Jeremiah 13:21-23
Habit is defined as a settled way of behavior that is not easy to change. It is commonly said, “habits are easier to form than to break”. Your behaviour can make you to be loved or hated by people. Has someone complained before about your habits? Someone has said, “habit is everything.” Your behaviour can build or break you. Our topic says that it is better to form a new, godly habit and break an old, bad habit. As it is not easy for the Ethiopian and the leopard in our text, to change their skin and spots, so those who are used to doing evil cannot find it easy to do what is good.
But that is what is required if you are going to live a meaningful life here on earth. The only way to break bad habit is through repentance and cleansing by the blood of Jesus. Therefore, you must humbly pray, confess your sins to God and ask Him to forgive and cleanse you from all sinful habits. After this, start to build up a godly life style through daily studying and meditating on God’s word.
Prayer for today
