Titus 3:14 “Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good…”

Developing Godly habits such as reading your Bible and praying are excellent things to do. But if you become too rigid in your scheduling of such things, God may throw a monkey wrench into your “sacred schedule” just to see what you’ll do. In other words, are you worshipping the habit or what the habit symbolizes? Say a close friend calls you very upset about a personal problem just as you’ve sat down with your Bible…do you change gears quickly, focusing on her with love, concern, and prayer…or do the unthinkable words come out of your mouth, “I can’t help you right now, it’s my quiet time with the Lord.” At that very moment, your habit has now become far more important than the hurting person God has placed across your path, and you are worshipping the habit rather than the reason to have the habit.
