Challenge of new behavior
Jan 1 devotional has been read. This paragraph stood out:
Accept the challenge. It is difficult to break up unplowed ground. For many folks weaknesses have hardened into strong habits. Old actions must give way to new behavior. Vice cannot be sown if virtue is to be harvested. The law of reaping what is sown has not been repealed, Galatians 6:7, 8.
Let’s ask forgiveness for our vices and strength to build the virtues of Christ.
Focus question: What weaknesses of mine have hardened into bad, strong habits? What old actions must be replaced with new behavior?
