Habitual Friar

It's all about habits. How I react to situations. What I do when I encounter new or existing interactions. Do I follow the teachings and instruction of God or do I revert to my own understanding. If I'm honest, it's usually the later. The LORD's ways seem to always be the exact opposite of my own intuition. When someone relays a juicy tidbit about someone whom I'm not particularly fond of, do I defend the absent one or do I sit and act pious and try to down play the news while inside I'm lapping up the latest dish? Of late I have been making right choices more often than not. It isn't easy taking the righteous road. The benefits are not immediate either. I do know that reverting to human nature ends up kicking me in the pants. Here's the funny thing too. The more I understand the truth the more I'm held accountable. As I practice and develop proper habits the stumbling becomes ever less frequent. When I do fall short however, the ramifications are usually quick and increasing in intensity. I take that to as a sign that I am on the right track.
