Legends Habits: Overcome Bad Habits Now.

What is a bad habit? A bad habit is usually a sin of the flesh or a sin of the heart that is practiced so often that it becomes the character of that person; it becomes part of their nature. Many a time it has turned into an addiction and people have confessed to God the sin of these habits, but they still have the addiction. God forgives us when we confess our sins to him. A lot of times because it has become a fabric of their nature, it has been practiced so often it becomes an addiction. It actually becomes a part of the character of that person. They don’t mean to be but it becomes a sin of our flesh.

Sins of the flesh are such things as cigarette smoking, alcohol, drugs, greediness, and laziness. One of the biggest addictions of our day is social networking. (It is always on from the first thing in the morning until the last thing at night. To many, it is their source of comfort, their source of and strength. They actually get very nervous if they are not connected to networks like Facebook and Twitter. It becomes their personal comforter.) Then there are the sins of the heart. These can just as much become bad habits or addictions.

Gambling is the sin of the heart called covetousness. Then there is…
But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth... Colossians 3:8
Pride! An addiction to constantly exalting themselves, and putting others down! These are addictions that can be recognized and sure enough if you deal with people long enough you will find individuals with these types of addictions. It is a character flaw in their nature that is produced by a constant practice of some sin of the flesh or some sin of the heart.

Here is the sorrowful declaration of King David in the Bible about his sinful habits:
 … innumerable evils have surrounded me; My iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to look up; They are more than the hairs of my head; Therefore my heart fails me… Psalms 40:12
Bad habits anchor you
 … This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast… Hebrews 6:19
Have you seen a ship out in the bay, its sails are all up, it swings with the tide and the waves. Yet, it refuses to move. Why? It is simply because deep under the water it is anchored or fastened! In the same way, you often see a person apparently well equipped, well educated, and you wonder why they are not making progress. In many cases, you will find that they are anchored secretly to bad habits. They can never move or succeed until they break free. A bad habit may not necessarily be something evil. It is however sure to hinder your progress. Secret sins prevent you from success and happiness. They take hold of you and make everything around you to fail.
 … For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies… Matthew15:19
The Little Foxes
The habit you consider no more desirable for your progress in life may one day gain enough power to overcome and tear you into pieces. Little sin kills as fast as great and big ones. You can do nothing with little foxes. The Bible commands you to take them away. Deal with them now because you have the will power and youthful energy and determination carry through your desire. Do it now. Take away any little foxes:
 … Catch us the foxes, The little foxes that spoil the vines, For our vines have tender grapes… Song of Solomon 2:15
A Bad habit is often good package in to attract you. Your friends, neighbors and relatives would invite you to participate in their worldly vain show.

What is the golden rule to bad habit?
The golden rule is simple. Ask yourself if you are ready to give in to this act for the rest of your life? If not, don’t ever yield to it even for once. Yes, refuse to accept even the first occasion. If you have fallen and thinking of your way up. Then never allow the occasion to follow the old pathway.
