Here it is, the 3rd day of 2020 and, just like all past new year resolutions made over the past decade +, I haven’t broken the only one I make each year. Remarkable! . . . well not exactly.
My one new year resolution is twofold:
1. Learn from my mistakes.
2. Remember the one immutable truism past mistakes have taught me.
I still haven’t mastered not making mistakes . . . who just shouted Amen? . . . and consequently, I’m destined to be a lifelong learner.
The one immutable truism past mistakes (polite terminology for sins) has taught me is stated in Galatians 6:7 . . . my Consequences verse. Each time I find myself at a decision crossroads along life’s road I pray I’ll remember what often I’ve sadly remembered too late:
Sin will always take you farther than you planned to Go
Sin will always keep you longer than you planned to Stay
Sin will always cost you more than you planned to Pay
May your travels through 2020 be marked by Go . . . Stay . . . Pay decisions that fill your life, and those around you, with peace, joy and love as we all journey towards Home together.
Be Blessed . . . and . . .
Keep Looking Up +
