Developing Right Habits

The word "habit" is so often used with an unpleasant connotation that we may think of a habit as something wholly undesirable and to be avoided. But this is not necessarily true. The Apostle Paul admonished, "Pray without ceasing."' I Thess. 5:17; And although Mrs. Eddy is vigorous and unequivocal in condemning evil habits, she writes, "The habitual struggle to be always good is unceasing prayer." Science and Health, p. 4;

Habit is an inclination toward some action which has been Strengthened through repetition. It shows itself in an increased facility of performance or in a decreased power of resistance. As we struggle habitually to be good, the struggle is made easier by constant effort and repetition, and resistance from mortal sense becomes less.
