Before you make any resolutions, take a moment to recalibrate, to make sure you are heading in the right direction. It’s no good making progress if you are going the wrong way. In particular, it is important to resist following the thundering herd of common public opinion. Groupthink is rarely carefully considered. Instead, apply these lines from Psalm 1 to your personal situation. And be blessed!
How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked,
Nor stand in the path of sinners,
Nor sit in the seat of scoffers!
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.
( Psalm 1:1-3)
Happy New Year!
