Bad habits like fidgeting, eating too much salt, or biting your nails are not good. However, the bad habits that are worse are those we don’t do. Not exercising. Not drinking enough water. These can impact our health, without us even realizing we have the bad habit! Did you know that stopping attending church can become a bad habit too? “Do not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encourage one another —and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” (Hebrews 10:25). The Oxford dictionary defines a habit as a “thing that you often do and almost without thinking, especially something that is hard to stop doing”. When we stop attending Bible classes or Sunday church, it quickly becomes a habit – a habit of not attending. Without even thinking, a not-attending habit forms that is hard to stop doing. The purpose of meeting together is not to tick a box or to get more knowledgeable. The purpose is to encourage, strengthen and comfort one another. We need to help each other, and even more so with the day of Christ’s return approaching. Let’s make meeting together a priority, and soon it will become something hard to stop doing. Now that’s an eternal life changing habit.
