March Madness and filling out Brackets has become a tradition for most in the United States. More people will watch and somewhat care about college basketball today than any other day of the year. Besides bosses who feel that their employees are less productive, most view this "National Tradition" to be positive. Traditions tend to be favorable activities. Christmas Traditions. Family Traditions. School Traditions. Traditions bring us together and remind us of past and connect us to our present. However, it is a good practice to look at the things we do on a regular basis and evaluate whether they are good for us to engage in (traditions) or if they are destructive to us and others (bad habits or sin).
Lord, help me to not merely engage in habits or traditions but fully understand why I do what I do and for whom I do it for.
