Series: Atomic Habits | Week 2: The Thing That Affects Every Other Thing

Read Deuteronomy 6:6-8

“And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders.”

1. What does God say we are to commit ourselves to?
2. How and when does He say we should commit ourselves to them?
3. Where does God instruct His people to place His commands?

Experts in human behavior tell us today what God’s Word has already said: we are largely visual people. If we want a habit to stick, we have to change what we see. Take some time now to set a time and location for when you will spend time meeting God in His Word and prayer. As you read, help it stick by writing things out, reading it repeatedly, committing certain verses to memory, and/or placing those verses in a place where you can see them on a regular basis.

For Families with Kids at Home
Today, spend some time in prayer for your children and their own habits. And start young! Make it a habit to read and talk about the Bible together as a family—whether at the dinner table, in the car, or before bedtime—make having spiritual conversations a normal family rhythm.
