The Leopard's Lesson

Jer 13:23, "Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also you can do good
who are accustomed to do evil."

It's been said, “Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character, sow a character, reap a destiny.” The problem with habits, as the saying goes, is that they begin in cobwebs and end in cables. Once an action becomes a habit it then becomes almost impossible to change. Never underestimate a thought or an action. That is why New Year's Resolutions are rarely more powerful than old year's habits. The more accustomed you are to do evil the more difficult it is to do good. It becomes more difficult than for a leopard to change his spots.
