A new year is the ideal time for fresh starts and new beginnings. Some people declare their resolutions for the new year–resolutions that often are so great that it inspires them for several days or weeks of January. I’ve never been one to articulate such resolutions. Instead, I look at the annual marker as a time to think strategically about where I’ve been, where I am and where I’d like to go. Like most years, there are so many hopes and wishes for 2010.
However, as Robyn and I were having dinner last night, the Lord cemented a lesson He’s been trying to teach me for several weeks years:
“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to [us] as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow …” (Matthew 6:33-34 NIV).
So, as I process the many goals for 2010, I resolve to study, meditate and try to seek first His kingdom and his righteousness like never before. It begins today.
