New Year’s has passed.. now we are out of January and into February. Did you make any resolutions? Goals? Promises? Yes, it is a bit cliché to make resolutions, after all, most of them don’t really work, right? Well, that is up to you. Whether you made some goals for yourself or not, here are some things to keep in mind this year.
Get into the Word more– The Bible is God’s way of speaking to us. It has His commandments, the story of his undying love, and everything in between. It is one of the best feelings when a verse in the Bible speaks to you. That is the amazingness of God.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16
Lend a helping hand– One of the things that the Bible preaches is serving others. Not only are you helping the receiver, but you are blessing yourself with the warmth of knowing that you did something. No good deed goes unseen.
Give to others, and God will give to you. Indeed, you will receive a full measure, a generous helping, poured into your hands- all that you can hold. The measure you use for others is the one that God will use for you. Luke 6:38
Encourage others– Have you ever had an awful day, but someone made it just a tad better by speaking a kind word to you? Gentle words go a long way. You never know what a nice voice or action will do to another person.
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. Ephesians 4:29
As a result, you grow closer to God– God gave us a Savior, Jesus Christ, so we can grow closer to Him through Christ.
For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. John 6:40
I have some questions for you all!
- What are some of your goals for 2015?
- Has someone ever changed your mood with a kind word?
