Developing Good Spiritual Habits


We grow when we developgoodspiritual habits. I cannot over estimate the importance of us building good habits in our lives. If we build good habits in our life, we're going to have good character. Our habits determine what we are and what we are determines where we go in life. Our character is the sum total of our habits. We can't say for instance, "I'm a kind person. I h...

2 Corinthians 4:16-18"That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won't last very long.
