Many Christians have the habit of daily Bible reading.

The Bible is the best-selling book of all time.[1]

Between 5 to 7 billion Bibles have been published.

A habit is a personal course of conduct that becomes difficult to change over time due its repetition and reliance as part of a daily or weekly routine.

A virtue is a good moral habit, while a vice is an evil or harmful one.

The room of the term habit is from the Latin habitus, meaing "having" or "condition" or "character".

Examples of influential habits in modern society include:

  • church attendance
  • Bible reading
  • daily prayer
  • exercise
  • addictions
  • daily reading of newspapers or other liberal sources of information
