“And no one after drinking old wine desires new, for he says, ‘The old is good.’” Luke 5:39
Is being a creature of habit a bad thing? Having habits and routines isn’t inherently bad unless it comes against doing something better for yourself. If you’re diabetic its probably not the greatest idea for you to eat a donut every single morning. You’ve got to know when you need to adjust your routine and when you need to adjust your habits.
People close to you can help you see those things. They can let you know if your daily intake of buttery cinnamon roll donuts is making you unhealthy and can encourage you to stop. And most definitely Jesus wants to help you to see things that you need to adjust in your habits.
You see, Jesus isn’t clueless. He knows you and I and He understands that we find comfort in the normalcy of life. In the routine of life. But to follow Jesus wholeheartedly means that you have to go ALL IN and make some big bets on things you don’t normally do.
So, what routine things in your life do you need to let go of so you can go ALL IN following Jesus? What bets are you ready to make? And remember, Jesus knows it’s not gonna be easy for you but He promises to be with you as you go ALL IN.
Father, help me to see routines in my life that I need to let go of. Help me to go ALL IN and to break the patterns in my life that might prevent me from following you whole-heartedly.
