Last night I hung out with some friends and one of the gals (thanks, DeAnn!) shared a teaching. She talked about a turkey path that with usage became a foot path, then a dirt road, then a lane, a paved road, a two way road and then finally an eight lane highway.
The eight lane highway didn’t just appear overnight from out of nowhere. It required a process of building over time.
That’s the way it is with a lot of areas in our lives, both good and bad. An attitude of bitterness starts with a moment of anger or dissatisfaction. A strong habit of being in the Word daily starts with placing a Bible in your favorite reading spot. Day in and day out we add to the “roads” of our lives. A happy marriage is built one day at a time, one smile at a time, one thoughtful gesture at a time.
We need to examine our lives and begin to look at the roads we are are creating. What roads do you need to build? Anyone need an exit ramp from the destructive habits and attitudes of your life?
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.
Watch your words, for they become actions.
Watch your actions, for they become habits.
Watch your habits, for they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny. Author Unknown
