Bill's blog: Biblical Resolutions for a New Year

Posted by donna on January 6, 2020

bulletin board.jpgI’ll be honest, I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. I’m too much of a realist, and I hate setting myself up for failure! I typically would be one of the 25% who abandons their resolution within the first two weeks of January! It is also very depressing to hear that only 8% of people who make a New Year’s resolution keep or achieve them!

A quick google search brings out some interesting facts about New Year’s resolutions. Most are self-focused. The top four resolutions, according to one study are:

Diet & health-related - 71%                             
Exercise more - 65%                                     
Save more, spend less, pay debts - 32%               
Quit smoking/drinking - 21%

Having said that, I do think that it’s important to take time to regularly review how we are growing as disciples of Jesus. New Year’s is a good time to do this as we are filled with anticipation and expectation for new opportunities. Let me suggest THREE BIBLICAL RESOLUTIONS that each of us may practice and use as a template for our spiritual growth.
