Despite yesterday’s post advising against New Year’s resolutions, here’s one that is always appropriate:
For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. (1 Cor. 2:2.)
I love this verse. I love how it reminds us that the focus of our faith is on Jesus and His sacrifice. That is the most important thing.
It’s either all about Jesus or I figure it’s all about nothing. Exemplifying that truth in my life comes and goes for me, though.
Perfect reminder to begin the new year! Thank you!

Made me think of this:
I am resolved no longer to linger,
Charmed by the world’s delight,
Things that are higher, things that are nobler,
These have allured my sight.
I will hasten to Him,
Hasten so glad and free;
Jesus, greatest, highest,
I will come to Thee.
I suppose this is more of a prayer than a statement for many of us on many days; at least, it is for myself.
It’s a beautiful daily prayer, Mary.
