I’m still in that mode that has me thinking about the things I want to work on during the year 2003. I suppose many of us feel as I do; that there is a lot of room for improvement in my life (yes I know, you agree, I need to make improvements in my life). That’s why I found Chuck Swindoll’s thoughts on the lists of Moses (Exodus 20:3-17) and Peter (2 Peter 1:5-8) so helpful in today’s devotional at Dallas Theological Seminary.
Look at Peter’s list…
- Be a diligent person.
- Don’t waver in your faith.
- Be known for uncompromising moral excellence.
- Enlarge your reservoir of knowledge; keep learning. Stay balanced; guard against extremes.
- Make sure your godliness is free of hypocrisy.
- Treat others tactfully, graciously.
- Let your Christian love flow, let it flow, let it flow.
“If you take these lists seriously, two things are certain: 1) You won’t be the same person you were last year, and 2) You certainly won’t get bored.”
“Without God, life is a monotonous repetition of weeks, months, seasons, years, decades, and generations.”
