Have you made any new year’s resolutions this year? I think this is the first year in a few that I haven’t made any – not out of any active plan not to, it just happened that way – but they’re always worth thinking about, aren’t they?
A new year’s resolution says: I want to be better, and I think doing such-and-such will help me achieve that goal.
I want to lose weight, so eating less chocolate/going to the gym will help.
I want to read the Bible more, so setting up a daily reading plan will help.
Insert your own here.
It’s common knowledge that the majority of new year’s resolutions are broken before the end of January, but if the rest of the world’s anything like me, the first week or two are actually pretty good. Just a thought, but what if, instead of setting these goals once per year, we set them once per month, or once per week? Would that even work?
Would we allow ourselves to keep such short accounts?
