Daily commitments beat a yearly resolution


Church Calendar

Charles Warner | The Union Times New Year's resolutions are wonderful things, except for that fact that human beings have a hard time committing to a year of anything on their own. A much easier thing to do is to commit to something on a daily basis, and that's why God wants us to commit to serving Him each day. God knows our weaknesses and our flaws, and He wants to help us overcome them and grow in strength, courage, wisdom and faith so that we may live the lives He wants us to and spend eternity with Him when we die. So God knows that we have trouble keeping a yearly resolution, so that's why He wants us to make serving Him and growing in our faith a daily thing. When we do that, we not only get closer to God, but we are reminded that days become weeks become months become year becomes a lifetime and we can look back on our lives and know that we lived them as God's children.
