I was lamenting and complaining to my son about how easy it is to create bad habits. And it is so hard it is to break them. It is hard to choose to create good habits and easy to stop them. Why is that?!
Maybe making good habits is hard because we live in a mortal world and that is just the way it is here. My son listened to me and then responded that he thinks it is because we need to consciously and consistently turn to God.
After I thought about what he said, I realized that he is right. I won’t get to return to live with God by accident. I have to look at and turn to the good, turn towards God. The choices I make every day, every hour, every minute determine whether I am turning to God or not. I choose God.
