Regular Behaviors Which Are Habitual Are Habits–Whether it is Admitted to Be So Or Not


It has been said that “Man is a creature of habit.”

And so he is: man settling into MANY behaviors which are regular, usual and expected.

IN other words: habits.


a settled tendency or usual manner of behavior

//her habit of taking a morning walk

Man has MANY behaviors which are classified as ‘habits’ and which are freely admitted to by their practitioners.

Most of the behaviors which are freely admitted as being ‘habits,’ are ‘bad habits’: behavior which HURTS the one who has the habit or is otherwise, self-destructive behavior.





The list is quite a long one.

[Wonder why bad habits are more easily identified as habits rather than other, less destructive behaviors?]

YET, there are other behaviors (many of them more benign than ‘bad habits’) which are not admitted to being habits–though they may be performed regularly as clockwork.

A great many American will admit to starting off their mornings with a cup of coffee.

AND, a great many of these Americans will admit to having that coffee every morning is a HABIT.

BUT, a great many OTHER Americans will NOT admit to having that coffee every morning to be a HABIT.

“It’s just something I like to do.”

A great many Americans turn in for the night and retire at the same time every evening.

“That’s just the time I’ve always went to sleep!”

For many, though the behavior is habitual, it is not considered to be a HABIT.

For decades, thousands stayed up to watch The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. It was suspected that many did this in order to have something interesting to say at work the next day.  At any rate, this regular watching of Johnny Carson before retiring for the evening was usually NOT considered a habit.

Perhaps because watching The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson was, at one time, considered a normal thing to do?

DOES the reader have any behaviors which are regular and usual?

DOES the reader consider these behaviors to be habits?


It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
