Personally, I love the beginning of a new year. I like to take this time of year to clean out a few things in my life. I believe that is a biblical principle. Here’s a verse that I think supports my thought. 

Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

2 Corinthians 5:17

This time of year is a wonderful opportunity for self reflection. So ask your self these questions: 

  1. What do you want to do to serve others?
  2. How can I be more of a blessing to my neighbors?
  3. What do my neighbors need from me?
  4. What can I do to be a better Bible student?
  5. How can I ramp up my prayer life this year?
  6. What do I need to do to be more involved in the work of the church?
  7. How can I be more responsible with my money so that I can give more away to those in need?
  8. Who can I mentor?
  9. Who can I talk to to get encouragement when I am down?
  10. What do I need to do to be more consistent in my worship attendance?
  11. How can I reach out to my family and mend relationships that have been troubled?
  12. Is there anything the church needs me to do to help spread the word more effectively in my neighborhood?
  13. How can I allocate my time and energy better to set aside ample time to read and study God’s word?
  14. Who needs me to check on them to encourage and lift them up out of a pit?
  15. How can I be a better version of myself to reflect Jesus more?

Take today to walk your mind through these questions and see how the new year can bring about new things for you!

I love you,
