Keys to Habits:

1. I must bad habits with good ones.

When an evil spirit leaves a person, it travels through the desert, looking for a place to rest. But when the
demon doesn't find a place, it says, "I will go back to the home I left." When it gets there and finds the place empty, clean, and neat, it goes off and finds seven other evil spirits even worse than itself. They all come and make their home there, and the person ends up in worse shape than before. 

-Matthew 12:43-45

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.  Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Repeat them again and again to your children.  Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
