In response to questions about his New Year’s resolutions, a philosopher once said, “I think in terms of the day’s resolution, not the year’s”
This way of thinking may in fact be the key to not only changing and becoming better as part of the turning over a new leaf at the dawn of a new year, but also in helping us to faithfully and consistently serve the Lord!
When we attempt to live months or even years ahead of our present circumstances, the end results is typically frustration and failure. The bible warns us that we don’t even know what tomorrow holds, much less next year, we must come to terms with the fact that life can only be lived one day at a time. I can only live for God one day at a time. It is only in today that I can be Christian.
If I am going to be kind, it must happen today!
If I am going to be faithful, it must happen today!
If I am going to please God, it must take place today!
If I am going to pray, it must be today!
Today is the only chance I have to give to the Kingdom of God! I have no resolutions for the year, but I have several for today…
