2012. The beginning of a new year. A time for new beginnings. There’s nothing particularly magical about one calendar date rolling on to the next, yet many people find themselves asking the ‘-er’ questions.
- How will this year be bett-‘er’?
- Will my job get hard-‘er’ or easi-‘er’?
- Will the money I make be great-‘er’?
- Will my lifestyle be healthi-‘er’?
- Will my relationships be deep-‘er’?
We’re fixated on ‘-er’ questions. They aren’t bad questions to consider. Life will move forward. Where you are right now is the result of answers to last year’s ‘-er’ questions. The choices you make today set the direction for the path you walk tomorrow.
James 4:14 and 17 say, “What is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away…therefore, to him who knows to do good, but does not do it, to him it is sin.”
Take inventory. This will be the year that changes everything. The quality of the change is up to you.
