A new proverb has been posted today (Sunday, July 20) on the subject of habituation. When a person decides to follow his conscience and do the right thing, he makes it easier for himself to repeat that behavior and do another good deed. In effect he habituates himself to doing good. By the same token if he gives in to a temptation to satisfy a sinful desire in spite of what his conscience is telling him, that person is actively habituating himself to sin.
