Harmful Patterns Of Living

He broke his neck and died, for he was old and overweight. (1 Samuel 4:18, NLT)

It’s easy to settle in to harmful (or even unhelpful) patterns of living. A sedentary life and fast food is convenient, easy, and…ultimately deadly.

The same happens beyond the physical realm. We get “old and overweight” when we fail to improve, fail to learn, fail to grow. We respond the way we always have because it’s easier than needing to change. We do the same things in the same way.

Father, show me the areas I need to learn and grow in today. Show me the steps I need to improve. And give me the strength and courage I need to step out and do it.
