Don’t Bother!

Bible Verse: Philippians 3:12,13

Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead.

Don’t Bother!

It’s that time again. Time to review the accomplishments and slip-ups of the past year, learn from them, and prepare to press on in the new year with joy and expectancy. However, if you’re planning on making resolutions, don’t bother. On the
other hand, if you’re actually planning on setting some goals and then breaking down specific larger tasks into smaller, measurable sub-goals, then you’re off to a great start.

We don’t have to look too far into the past to see our pitiful track record of keeping resolutions, particularly if we don’t write them down, make ourselves accountable, or come up with some sort of plan.

The Lord wants this to be a progressive and joy-filled year for you. There’s nothing really wrong with making resolutions, but creating a plan and setting measurable goals is best. Yet, if you want this year to be the greatest one ever, your first
goal is to allow your relationship with the Lord to occupy the top of every list. Let Him be the Lord of your life and this year is certain to be all that He desires for you.
