Watcha Doing?

    As I am writing this, it is that time of the year again–coming to the end of Year 2015. New Year’s resolutions will be made and broken by many. Resolutions are easy to make but harder to keep. We often promise, then forget the resolution we made because we get so busy doing many other things, which are not necessarily bad things. We do not seem to have time to keep our resolutions. But it is still true–it takes time to be holy.

    In the very beginning of the new year it is a good time to reflect on how much we have grown spiritually. How faithful have we been over the pst year?

    In the Our Daily Bread booklet (July, 2011) David Branon reflected on how his granddaughter got him thinking about his own walk with God. Wouldn’t it be helpful to think of God coming alongside us and asking, “What are you doing?” Too many times our answer would really be empty and meaningless.

    The Bible tells us plainly that whatever we do, we are to do it to bring glory to God (1 Corinthians 10:31; Colossians 3:23; and Ephesians 5:15).
