Habits: Learning

Today, we celebrate Pentecost Sunday! John 14:23-26 23 Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. 25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit,…

Today, we celebrate mothers! Moms are the best at establishing good habits and keeping us from bad ones. To this very day, I have my own mother to thank for driving into my life good habits like remembering to wash my hands after I use the restroom and for driving out bad habits from my life.  If it wasn’t for her, I’d be picking my nose far more often than I do right now.
