The Good and the Bad...Little Habits

Just some random thoughgts going through my head today.... :)

We all got those little habits in our life. In fact they are so little that sometimes we don't even recognize them or think they are a big deal. But like most things in life...the little things become a big thing.

If they are good habits, then we have nothing to worry about. But if they are bad habits we need to be on our guard and continually fight them, or else these seemingly harmless things become a big problem and will take over our lives and consume us.

When we form these habits we often don't realize what they will may start out as a harmless lie, or a careless decision....but it leads us deeper and deeper into it's trap, unnoticed by our blinded eyes. Before we know it, they consume us and even define us.

The bad habits don't take work, our carnal flesh leads us into them easily. It's the good habits that take work to form. So how do we overcome the bad habits? By developing and working on good habits. It may start out small, and seem pointless. In the end though the good habits grow and they eventually consume us, pushing out the bad ones. You fight and destroy those bad little things in your life, by nourishing and developing the good little things!

God's Love - Kenny Anderson

The four dimensions of God's love:
  • Breadth: John 3:16 "For God so loved the world..." It's a love wide enough to cover the whole earth!
  • Length: 1 Cor. 13:8 "Love never ends..." It's a love long enough that it never ends!
  • Height: Heb 12:22-23 "But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn who are enrolled in heaven, and to God..." A love which is high enough to reach us from earth and bring us into the heavens.
  • Depth: Phil. 2:8 "And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. " A love which is deep enough to take Christ form His throne, to the very depths, to reach the lowest of the lowest sinners.
These four dimensions describe an infinite and incomprehensible love!

A.W. Tozer- "Because God is self-existent, His love had no beginning; because He is eternal, His love can have no end; because He is infinite, it has no limit; because He is holy, it is the quintessence of all spotless purity; because He is immense, His love is an incomprehensibly vast, bottomless, shoreless sea..."
