“…all things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify…”

1 Corinthians 10:23 (NKJV)

As you journey through your Christian walk, there are few things you must be disciplined about; some of which include your habits. As simple as this might sound, it plays a major role in the outcome of your life. Most people generally do not take habits seriously. They don’t see any reason why they should improve or adjust their habits. But the truth remains that the total outcome of our lives is completely dependent on the kinds of habits that we cultivate over time. They determine the results of our lives. If you want to have a wonderful result in any area of your life, you must get rid of the wrong habits and cultivate the right habits in that area. Whether you like it or not, the right habits add to your life while the wrong habits take from your life.

I remember counseling someone years ago about getting rid of a certain habit and he said to me, “I don’t really see anything wrong with this habit because it is not affecting my life negatively, it’s just a harmless habit”. And I said to him, a negative habit is a negative habit. The effects may not immediately be evident, but it will eventually come up. I tried counseling him but all efforts to get him to change his mind proved abortive, so I had to let the matter be because I didn’t want to argue. But the truth remains that he has believed a lie. There is no such thing as a harmless habit. It is either a good habit or a bad habit. If it is a good habit, it will add to your life and improve it, but if it is a bad habit, it will take from your life and bring problems. It is that simple. Paul the apostle said, “…all things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things edify…” 1 Corinthians 10:23 (NKJV). He knew that some things are just not helpful and you must come to such maturity. Avoid wrong habits, because one way or the other it will rob you of certain things. For example, as harmless as watching television can be, if it gets too much, it could rob you of important achievements in your life because what you are losing by watching too much television is time. Time is to be invested not wasted. The same thing applies to giving too much attention to social media and lots more. Therefore, I admonish you to review your life today and work on the areas where you have excesses and improve on areas where you have deficiencies. Remember, man’s life is a culmination of his habits. If your habits are good, your results will be good but if your habits are bad, your results will come out bad. Hallelujah!
