BAD HABITS EVERY CHRISTIAN SHOULD BREAK OUT OF

Christians are known for doing some good things: helping the poor, feeding the hungry, caring for the sick, uplifting the broken, fighting for justice and many other acts of love.
But Christians are also known for having bad habits and the following are a few habits that every Christian should break out of;  

1. Being Judgmental
One of the few sins Jesus repeatedly warns His followers not to do is be judgmental. Despite this, many Christians mistakenly assume that withholding judgment is a form of accepting, condoning and even affirming sin. But judgment from Christians doesn’t determine whether a particular belief, action or lifestyle is either wrong or righteous in the eyes of God.
2. Running Late: Consider Others, Give Yourself More Time
Philippians 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
When you run late it is a selfish act that says “my time is more important than yours.” Give yourself 10-15 more minutes than usual and eventually you will show up on time. It is better to early and give yourself time, than rush and show up late.
3. Overcomplicating the Love of Jesus
Following Jesus is very hard. It requires sacrifice, humility, service, patience, forgiveness and lots of love. It can be tempting—and much easier—to focus on specific parts of the Bible that don’t require as much endurance, are more flashy, will draw more attention and will instil a greater sense of excitement.
So some of us create a “Christian” platform that becomes our passion. A political agenda, social cause, moral practice or specific theological belief can become central to our faith—overtaking Jesus’ command to love others as yourself.
Thus, we get people who will practically fight to the death over things such as Calvinism, infant baptism and various other causes and doctrines. In and of themselves these things aren’t necessarily bad—everyone has their own convictions about theological issues—but when things are prioritized above Christ’s love, it leads to idolization.
4. Gossiping: Are You A Part of The Problem or Solution?
Proverbs 16:28 A forward man soweth strife: and a whisperer separateth chief friends.
Gossip is a very easy trap to get caught in. It is important to realize if you are a part of the problem or solution. If you are neither, then don’t listen because you don’t need gossip in your life. Do not get involved and tell the person nicely that it is something you don’t need to know.
5. Posting Garbage on Social Media
Posting vitriolic, superficial, and offensive content on our Facebook feeds and Twitter accounts doesn’t glorify God.
Before posting anything, stop and think: “Is this true, helpful, inspiring, necessary and kind?”
Ultimately, Jesus is what Christianity is all about, not political platforms, doctrinal disagreements, online religious commentary or ominous prophecies.
This rule has saved me from putting lots of foolish and reactionary content online, and it would do all Christians a world of good to carefully reflect on whether their social commentary is motivated by the love of Christ.
6. Procrastination: Stop Being Lazy
Psalm 119:15-16 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways. I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
Procrastinating is a terrible habit that can hold off and stop things that we plan to do because we become lazy. It is the complete opposite of diligence. Don’t put things off until last minute, get them done first — even if you don’t enjoy it.
7. Being Hypocritical
It’s easy to talk about God, argue theological issues and post about faith issues on all sorts of communication platforms. But in order to follow Christ, we are required to actually put our words into actions. As the old adage goes, we must practice what we preach.
Unfortunately, too many Christians talk about Christ’s love without actually being loving. Meanwhile, the rest of world witnesses this obvious contradiction and simply stops listening.
8. Being Closed-Minded
The problems listed above are often caused by being closed-minded—not considering, acknowledging or even dialoguing with the infinite amount of diverse factors that exist beyond our own limited experiences.
9. Bad Language and Lying: Become a Different Person, Use Different Words
Ephesians 4:22-24 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of the mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
It is nearly impossible to follow the Ten Commandmentsperfectly throughout our entire life. But, we can do our best to keep our eyes upon Jesus and walk with the Spirit. When we choose to walk in the Spirit rather than the flesh we will always choose the good thing (Gal 5:16-17).
