At the beginning of a new year, many people make resolutions. The reasons to make a resolution/s vary from changing careers to losing weight or becoming healthier.
Interestingly, reading the article from finder.com.au I noted that having or increasing their families isn't a resolution. Buying a home is not in the top five activities. However, eating more healthily and saving more money are at the top of the list.
So how are you tracking in 2023?
Our resolutions often are made to improve our physical or financial needs. But what about our spiritual needs?
'It takes wisdom to build a house and understanding to set it on a firm foundation; It takes knowledge to furnish its rooms with fine furniture and beautiful draperies. It’s better to be wise than strong; intelligence outranks muscle any day. Strategic planning is the key to warfare; to win, you need a lot of good counsel.' Proverbs 24:3-5 (The Message)
Proverbs 21:2 says, 'A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart.'
- The Lord in our lives. That is a personal relationship with our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Find out more here.
- Wisdom - we find this by reading and obeying Scripture.
- Allowing the Lord to direct us by the Holy Spirit.
- Living out our faith each day (not just the day you go to meet with fellow believers).
