A New Swing

Topic:
Forming new habits

Bible:
Ephesians 4:22-24

Discussion Starter:
They say golf is a game of muscle memory. So it’s easy to laugh at this man’s swing and see that he’s practiced wrong at home. But that’s exactly how habits are formed– What we practice is what comes out in real life.

We have the ability to form new, more healthy habits, which will help us keep our walk with Jesus healthy. Paul writes in Ephesians 4, “You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.”

In other words, just because you might have some unhealthy habits doesn’t mean that you can’t make the choice to start creating better ones today.

3 Questions:

  1. Would you tell your boss his swing was ugly or just poke fun of him behind his back?
  2. How do you form new habits? What works for you? What doesn’t?
  3. What are some old habits you’d like to get rid of? What are some new habits you’d like to start?
Chew on This:
How do you form new habits when some of the bad ones in your life are the result of where you live? (Your family, friends, or even the physical place where you live.
