Is your habit your god?

In some Christian circles, a great deal is made of having a daily habit of spiritual disciplines. The disciplines are usually called “a time with God.” Many of us are encouraged to set the time with God in concrete. We begin to treat this time so religiously that if someone comes along and asks us to do something, we say, “I can’t do that now, this is my time with God.” We are in danger of making our habit our god. Instead of us serving God, we are now serving our habit. God is still working out something in our life when these interruptions come into our lives. – Ron Friesen
