Out With the Bad, In With the Good

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 (The Message)
The world is unprincipled. It's dog-eat-dog out there! The world doesn't fight fair. But we don't live or fight our battles that way—never have and never will. The tools of our trade aren't for marketing or manipulation, but they are for demolishing that entire massively corrupt culture. We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity.
We are creatures of habit. Some of our habits are good and some not so good. Usually we wait for a New Year to make resolutions but, there is no time like the present. If we decide to get rid of a bad habit we must replace it with a good one. Pray and ask God what He would want you to Stop doing and Start doing. Do it today. Make the change right now. Read the passage again and then write down what you are going to stop and what you are going to start. Just one thing.
