Do you make New Year resolutions? I usually do not. The few I have written or resolved in the past were likely forgotten by February or March of the same year.

Looking into 2017, however, I sense some clear instructions from the Lord. So if I want to be obedient, it probably means that some resolutions are needed, related to these:

REST. God rested after six days of work. Is my work more important than His? (ha!) Resting and the related instructions regarding Sabbaths and Jubilees are all part of God’s law. But we (I) could (and do) argue: do we need to be bound to follow the law, now that we are in the New Covenant dispensation? (The typical cop-out, right?) Jesus, who came to fulfill the law, explained it so well: “The Sabbath was created for man, not man for the Sabbath.” In other words, the principle of Sabbath rest is for our own good. In order to correctly pace this race and reach the appointed finish, I need to be willing to rest!

RELATE. We often hear about two main categories of people: relationship-oriented and task-oriented. I am definitely among the latter. Translated, it means that I am energized by doing tasks and drained by being with people. But—we need each other! And relationships, in order to be healthy, need our time. Second resolution.

REPRODUCE. Things that have life, grow. Things that have sustainable life, reproduce. Russ Carson writes in the book What Makes a Leader Great that we exist in order to replace ourselves. Mentoring others and replacing ourselves is important for any person of any age. But when you are over forty (smile!), it becomes even more crucial. In every area of work and ministry, God wants me to replace myself in others this year.

The “Three R’s” of Reading, ‘Riting and ‘Rithmatic represent the basics of education. This year, God is calling me back to another basic three R’s. May His grace be sufficient!

We wish each and every one of you a wonderful year in 2017.

How Narrow Is Your Focus?
January 3
Someone once said, “Doing the most important thing is always the most important thing.” I have found that those who are successful in life work from a clear sense of priority. Paul the apostle said it like this, “This one thing I do…” (Phil. 3:13). To achieve extraordinary results, we must choose what matters most...
