About two years ago, David Bruce read a book that opened his eyes as to why we as people think and act as we do. Others on our communications team and I were recently introduced to the same book through an Andy Stanley podcast and his interview with the author, Charles Duhigg. The name of the book is The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business. It is a must read.
We’re doing an entire Sunday message series based on it and are understanding our behavior more clearly, understanding how God designed our brains to work, and building better spiritual habits. As we study the customs of Jesus, Paul, other biblical examples, and our contemporaries through this lens, we’re already seeing how we can imitate them in our pursuit of being our best for God. As David said in the first installment of the series, we’re getting the “inside scoop on our (habit) loop.”
