Just Wondering…

I was just wondering what resolution you will make this year. You know what I mean, the one you make every year or the one you know you will not keep come tomorrow. Why do we make resolutions when the word of the one who created us teaches us that it is sin to do so and not keep our word? Perhaps it is because we forget that we are not who we truly think we are. Maybe our resolutions are so rose-colored that we can only see them in the light of our tinted worldview. Perhaps we need to resolve to know him who loved us so much that he died for us and to serve him faithfully in his assembly as he has asked us to do. Perhaps if we focus more on him in the coming year and less on ourselves, we will not have to make any more resolutions we cannot keep. Makes one wonder…
