My resolutions for the new year:
- I resolve to try to be more understanding of other people in their moment of need, doing my best to be the listening ear of anyone who reaches out to me for help, no matter how small or large their need.
- I resolve to try to be the kind of person that no matter what is going on, I can be counted on to be consistent in my words and deeds.
- I resolve to live my life for the real Jesus, not "frat boy" or "block layer" Jesus.
- I resolve to find a church that is not "radical" or "relevant". A church that will not pressure me to give my house, car or 401K, "cut" all my jacked-up friends from my "huddle", or submit to the pastors rather than Jesus, all while predicting "the end is near". A church that will shepard it's flock WHILE trying to help the people that are still wandering without Jesus. A place that I can move ahead at my own pace, putting in one toe at a time, if I so choose.
This is a new year and I choose to live by new rules. They all come in one handy Book.
