Many of us deal with bad habits through shame about them, making excuses about them, or yielding to them. It’s part of the human condition to approach bad habits in this way. It’s as if we feel a gravitational pull to make bad decisions. But we can replace these responses to bad habits with hope, and that’s what this message is about. Through the story of the Israelites getting liberated from Egypt and then complaining about their conditions after, wanting to go back to Egypt and slavery, we read and discuss Moses’ and God’s response and what it has to say to us and the ways we drift in our faith, today.
