New Year’s Resolutions

Studies show that most well-intentioned new year’s resolutions are broken by mid-January.

I think I know why.

What do you think?

The problem with  a new year’s resolution is that it is often put off until the new year, which means, in my opinion, that it must not be that important to the individual.

People who are serious about making changes, don’t wait until a day or a special occasion. They do it immediately.

Alcoholics stop drinking and throw away all their liquor. Smokers put out that cigarette and toss their unused ones in the trash. Overweight people intent on losing weight will refuse that second helping today. People who want to turn away from an unhealthy habit, start right now.  But there are exceptions to these.

If you want to stick to a new year’s resolution, decide to do it and start this minute. Don’t wait until a day in the future, like new years day to change.

People often put off spiritual changes until Easter or Christmas when they’d be better off by doing it today.

Go to church this week.

Read your Bible today.

Pray this morning.

Repent and give your heart to the Lord right now.

“Behold, now is the day of salvation.” II Corinthians 6:2c

Why wait?

Don’t put it off. Do it now. Get motivated today. Tomorrow might be too late.
